Legal Education Diversity Pipeline Grant – Access Group Center

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.

To that end, the center’s Legal Education Diversity Pipeline Grant Program awards grants of up to $125,000 to current or proposed programs that conduct effective interventions designed to enhance access to legal education for students from diverse backgrounds, with a focus on 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.

LOI’s must be received no later than March 31. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by June 30, 2019.
