Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) offers the MALDEF 2011-2012 Law School Scholarship Application. A copy of the Application is attached and also available for downloading at www.maldef.org. The deadline for this year is December 16, 2011.
Since MALDEF’s founding, the civil rights organization has awarded scholarships to law students who will further MALDEF’s mission of advancing 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.
MALDEF hopes to significantly increase our applicant pool this year, particularly from diverse geographic areas throughout the United States.
