APABA Scholarship Fund

Donate to the APABA Scholarship Fund

The Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Los Angeles County is a member organization comprised of attorneys, judges, legal professionals, and law students throughout Los Angeles County. It is a voice for issues of concern to the Asian Pacific American community. APABA organizes and co-sponsors events and programs that assist underserved communities, promote civil justice, and foster professional development, mentorship, and community.

APABA awards a Public Interest Fellowship annually to a law student who demonstrates leadership potential, maturity, and responsibility, as well as a commitment to contributing to the Asian/Pacific Islander American community. The APABA Public Interest Fellow receives a grant to spend at least 8 weeks of his or her summer working at a nonprofit public interest organization or governmental agency that provides free legal services to low-income individuals and/or families in Los Angeles County. Special consideration is given to applicants working on issues impacting the APIA community.

The Fellowship Fund is maintained by the California Community Foundation (CCF) and is funded by contributions from our installation dinner sponsors and generous individual donors like yourself.
