LGBTQ+ Lawyers LA Law
Attention Law Students! Donald Snow Scholarship Applications Being Accepted Online.
LGBTQ+ Lawyers LA offers the Donald L. Snow Scholarship, which is awarded annually to deserving local law students. The Donald L. Snow Scholarship was made possible by a generous bequest from LGBTQ+ Lawyers LA member Donald Snow. For several years Mr. Snow was President of the Lambda Democratic Club in Long Beach and helped obtain direct financial assistance for people living with AIDS. Through these efforts and others, Mr. Snow served as a leader and spokesperson for LGBT rights.
Because of this gift and this continuing endowment, LGBTQ+ Lawyers LA is able to award scholarships to locally enrolled law students who demonstrate financial need and either (1) are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, or (2) have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to the promotion of the civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender persons.
Applicants for the Donald L. Snow Scholarship must be enrolled and in good academic standing at an accredited law school located in Los Angeles County or Orange County at the time of the application and at the time of the award.
The application for the Donald L. Snow Scholarship must be completed online by visiting: https://applyforgrants.calfund.org/.
Detailed instructions for completing the application are available here.
LGBTQ+ Lawyers LA will award the Donald L. Snow Scholarship at its annual Gala in Spring 2018.
LAW STUDENT SOCIAL AND NETWORKING EVENTS
Each year, LGBTQ+ Lawyers LA hosts two special social events specifically for LGBT law students. Both events are free to law students whether you are an LGBTQ+ Lawyers LA member or not.
Both of these great events are enthusiastically attended by numerous LGBTQ+ Lawyers LA members and non-members and give law students ample opportunity to make contacts, forge new friendships and alliances, and become more informed about social, economic, and political matters that directly affect our community.
Law students are encouraged to become LGBTQ+ Lawyers LA members so that they have access to the full spectrum of LGBTQ+ Lawyers LA educational and social activities, advocacy campaigns and related organizations throughout Southern California.
