Supporting Indigenous students in their pursuit of a legal education increases the representation of Indigenous students in the legal community.
The Law Society’s Indigenous Law Student Scholarship supports Indigenous law students who are pursuing a Juris Doctor degree, a Master of Laws degree, or a Ph.D. in law. It also promotes legal research and scholarly work related to Indigenous legal orders, language, history, traditions, and culture.
Up to three scholarships in the amount of $5,000 will be awarded annually to candidates chosen through a selection process developed by the Law Society’s Indigenous Education Action Committee. Each of the successful scholarship recipients will have their picture and biography featured on the Law Society’s website.
To apply for this scholarship, please complete the Indigenous Law Student Scholarship Application form and include any required attachments.
The annual application deadline is June 1.
Completed application forms should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
