The SDLRLA Scholarship Fund law student scholarships are awarded to full time law students in their first and second year of law school and part time students up to their third year of law school. Recipients are not limited to persons of a Latino/Latina background, instead the scholarships are awarded to law students from a variety of backgrounds who have contributed to the betterment of the Latino community.

The scholarships typically range from $1,000 to $5,000. Recipients are honored each year at the SDLRLA Annual Awards and Gala Dinner.
Since 2007, the Scholarship Fund has proudly awarded over $341,000 to exceptional and dynamic law students.
