"I've had DACA since 2012. I've been undocumented since 2001. And I'm 31 years old and I want to have peace of mind and live a normal life."
“I realized that I am not alone on this journey. So many other undocumented folks also want to become lawyers.” — Stephanie Medina, Pre-Law Fund Grantee
Immigrants Rising’s Pre-Law Fund will provide grants to low-income immigrants who are planning to attend law school. We provide grants of up to $2,500 to cover LSAT preparation (courses, tutoring, self-study materials, etc) and law school application fees. In addition to financial support, recipients will be connected to Immigrants Rising’s network of legal professionals.
Applications are due at 11:59 p.m. PT on Monday, May 22, 2023.
This year’s Pre-Law Fund is made possible because of the generous financial support of these incredible donors: Kathryn Abrams, Tanya Broder & Theodore Wang, Yuen & Sandra Gin, The Arturo & Rosa González Family Giving Fund, Johanna Hartwig & Stefano DeZerega, Barry Hovis, Elizabeth J.
