Hispanic Lawyers Scholarship Fund of Illinois: Scholarship Opportunity

Hello Everyone, just spreading the word about opportunities in Chicago for !L scholarship awards for Hispanic students. Today more than ever, the costs of attending college and graduate school are high. But in my view, education is still well worth the investment. One way you can mitigate those costs is by by applying to scholarships like these. Ones that exists to support you, while you also support a great cause.

Here is the message I received about the award. Good luck to those who apply.

Good morning – The Hispanic Lawyers Scholarship Fund of Illinois is accepting applications from 1L students for its annual scholarship award. A copy of the application is attached. Please feel free to forward to any Hispanic 1L students/law school organizations at your school who might be interested.

HLSF is also soliciting applications for summer fellowship opportunities with the Cook County State’s Attorneys’ Office, the Cook County Public Defenders’ Office and the Chicago Regional office of the National Labor Relations Board. Each recipient will be awarded a $5,000 summer stipend. Hispanic law students of any level may apply. A copy of the fellowship application is attached. Please feel free to forward to any Hispanic students/law school organizations at your school who might be interested.

Applications for the scholarships and fellowships are due back March 30. Recipients will be honored at a reception that will be held on Thursday, May 24, 2012 at the law offices of Winston & Strawn LLP, 35 W. Wacker Dr., Chicago, IL.
