Outlaws Civil Rights Scholarship

The Outlaws Civil Rights Scholarship provides support for a student actively committed to and engaged in public interest law that benefits the lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender ("LGBT") community.

Eligible candidates include Seattle University School of Law incoming 1L's and current 1L's, 2L's and part-time 3L's.  

Applicants should submit a resume along with a brief cover letter, explaining their work and future plans/interests. The ideal candidate should have a demonstrated track record and history of working on significant, topical issues that he/she plans to build on further throughout and after law school, once equipped with a law degree. Special value will be given to work within diverse communities, e.g., LGBT immigrants or underserved areas. Examples of public interest work might include: traditional civil rights, immigrants, medical care with youth, the disabled, the elderly, low-income housing, a legislative forum and/or international work.  

A scholarship of $2,500 will be awarded as part of the recipient's financial aid package for the 2020-21 academic year. A student can receive the award more than once but must reapply each year.

Completed applications should be submitted to Associate Dean Kristin DiBiase . Please email your application to kdibiase@seattleu.edu.  Applications are due by Monday, April 13, 2020. The 2020 recipient will be named by the end of the spring semester.
