ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarships
The ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarships are intended to encourage racial and ethnic minority students to apply to law school and to provide financial assistance to these students. The Scholarship Fund awards $5,000 of financial assistance annually to each scholarship recipient attending an ABA-accredited law school. An award made to an entering first-year student may be renewable for two additional years, resulting in financial assistance totaling $15,000 during his or her time in law school. Recipients will be selected based on their qualifications for the scholarship and not on the law school they plan to attend.
