The LGBT Bar Association Foundation of Greater New York (“LeGaL”) is now accepting applications for its inaugural LSAT Scholarship to help defray the costs of a preparatory course and/or examination fees for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT).
As part of our efforts to promote the expertise and advancement of LGBTQ+ legal professionals, LeGaL is seeking to increase the pipeline of LGBTQ+ people entering the legal profession in New York. People who belong to multiple communities historically excluded from the practice of law are especially encouraged to apply. The recipient of the 2021 LSAT scholarship will receive financial assistance to take a LSAT preparation course of their choosing and will be given a premium student membership to LeGaL during their law school journey.
Scholarship applicants must be currently enrolled, or graduated from, a four-year college or university. Must be committed to taking the LSAT in 2021, and pursuing a law degree at an ABA accredited law school with the intention of practicing in New York upon graduation.
Recipients will be awarded up to $1,500.00 USD, made payable to the applicable course provider of the applicant’s choosing in/after June 2021.
Applications will be accepted from April 15, 2021 through May 15, 2021.
