Since MALDEF’s founding, the civil rights organization has awarded scholarships to students who are committed to working to advance the civil rights of the Latino community in the United States. In recent years, MALDEF has annually awarded 5-10 scholarships of $5,000 each.
MALDEF’s Law School Scholarship Program is open to all law students who will be enrolled at an accredited United States law school in 2011-2012. Applicants are evaluated for their academic and extracurricular achievements, for their background and financial need, and, most importantly, for their demonstrated commitment to advancing Latino civil rights in their careers.
To provide additional opportunity for more law students across America to apply to this year’s scholarship, MALDEF has extended the postmark deadline for the 2011-2012 MALDEF Law School Scholarship Program to January 2, 2012.
