Upsolve Access to Justice Scholarship

At Upsolve, we know just how important students are for ensuring a future legal system that’s equitable and accessible. Upsolve itself started as a university project, relying on university professors for mentorship and students for team members.
To encourage students to brainstorm ideas for changes they’d like to see, we’ve set up a scholarship. We aim to encourage students to focus on ways they think our society can improve access to justice. We welcome a two-page essay on your ideas for the future by email.
The essay that we find most inspiring will receive $2,500, awarded by June 1, 2021. To apply, please email scholarships@upsolve.org by March 31, 2021.

Criteria:
In order to be eligible for the $2,500 scholarship, applicants must meet the following criteria:
Must be a current high school senior, a full-time college student, or a graduate student;
Must apply via email and provide their name, address, university or college, major and expected graduation month and year;
Must be in good standing with their current or prospective institution;
Provide their application (a 500 to 1,000 word essay on your ideas for a more equitable legal system) by March 31, 2021.
If you have any questions, please reach out to our scholarship coordinator Ivetty Estepan at ivetty@upsolve.org.
