Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area (AABA) Law Foundation Scholarship
Deadline: January 31, 2017
The AABA recognizes the importance of fostering the growth of law students to improve the future development of the Asian Pacific American bar. AABA will award scholarships to deserving law students who are committed to advocating and improving their communities.
The AABA Law Foundation is a nonprofit public benefit corporation dedicated to serving the community and law students through its Foundation Scholarship awards: the Raymond L. Ocampo Jr. Family Scholarship; the Joe Morozumi Scholarship; the AABA Law Foundation Scholarship; and the Asian Pacific American Judges Scholarship.
All current law students are eligible to apply, but preference is given to first and second-year law students at a San Francisco Bay Area school (Stanford University, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Hastings, University of San Francisco, Golden Gate University, Santa Clara University, or McGeorge School of Law). Selection criteria include past, present and future community service or public interest work for the Asian Pacific American (APA) community or other underrepresented communities; demonstrated leadership in the APA community; demonstrated financial need; and past, present and future commitment to the Bay Area.
The AABA Law Foundation requires that all scholarship recipients:
- Attend the AABA Annual Dinner on Thursday, March 12, 2015 in San Francisco;
- Become a Law Student Member of AABA; and
- Become a Lawyer Member of AABA upon graduation from law school
Award: The amount of each scholarship this year will depend on the financial needs of the applicant pool, but we expect that they will be a minimum of $5,000 each.
