SOAR for Justice

SOAR For Justice Scholarship


SOAR for Justice is committed to financially assisting the next generation of public interest lawyers. Specifically, we  offer scholarship awards ranging from $500 to $1150 to extraordinary law students committed to helping survivors of intimate partner violence. The scholarship award is intended to help students defray the costs of obtaining a law school education.

 

All of our past recipients have exemplary records providing pro bono legal services to low-income survivors. In addition, some are survivors  who escaped abusive relationships in the past and are currently working towards a law degree to help others in need.  We are extremely proud of their courage and determination.
