Legal Education Diversity Pipeline Grants
Center for Research & Policy Analysis Invites Applications for Legal Education Diversity Pipeline Grants
The Access Group Center for Research & Policy Analysis conducts research and provides grants that address some of the most critical issues facing legal education today, including enhancing access to legal education for students from diverse backgrounds; increasing the affordability and financing options for students pursuing legal education; and expanding the value and relevance of legal education.
The center’s Legal Education Diversity Pipeline Grant Program awards grants of up to $125,000 in support of current or proposed programs that conduct effective interventions aimed at enhancing access to legal education for students from diverse backgrounds (i.e., historically underrepresented minority students and students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds). Projects should address the issue of enhanced access to legal education, at the national level, or encompass more localized efforts that might be efficiently scaled across institutions and regions for greater impact. Applications from programs that display a collaborative approach and strong partnerships with other organizations to achieve the goal of enhancing access to legal education are encouraged.
Letters of Inquiry must be received no later than March 31, 2016. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by June 30, 2016.
See the center’s website for complete program guidelines, an informational webinar, and application instructions.
DEADLINE: MARCH 31, 2016 (LETTERS OF INQUIRY)
