The University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law (UDC-DCSL) offers up to 20 full-tuition Advocate for Justice Scholarships each year. Their award is based equally upon evaluation of applicants' academic talent and their proven commitment as advocates for justice. Toward this end, the School considers applicants' undergraduate and graduate fields of study; grades; LSAT scores; publications; academic, personal and professional recommendations; as well as evidence of their professional experiences, community service, and other pertinent information. Due to UDC-DCSL's emphasis on demonstrated commitment to working for justice, successful scholarship applicants may be more than a few years out of college. The Scholarship Committee welcomes applicants to share information on specific legal career goals, if they have them. If applicants do not have a clearly developed practice area in mind, they should explain to the Committee what in their personal background and history demonstrates their values and/or proves their commitment to serving as an advocate for justice. The Committee is particularly interested in the applicant's having taken initiative, having applied creativity, having organized others, having participated in public discussion or debate, or in other activities working for justice. For further information on deadlines and requirements, please visit the program website.
