Legal Education Diversity Pipeline Grant Program

Legal Education Diversity Pipeline Grant Program

Program Overview and Requirements

The Legal Education Diversity Pipeline Grant Program annually awards grants to programs that enhance access to legal education for historically underrepresented minority students and students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

To be considered for funding, a proposal must seek to directly improve access to legal education for talented, purpose-driven students facing obstacles out of their control. AccessLex Institute also encourages applications from programs that display a collaborative approach and strong partnerships with other organizations striving to achieve the goal of enhancing access to legal education for students from diverse backgrounds.

Please read the complete Legal Education Diversity Pipeline Grant Program application policy.
