Diversity Pipeline Grant Applications

LSAC Diversity Pipeline Grant Applications

Purpose of Grants
The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) is committed to promoting access and equity in legal education and the legal profession. To this end, LSAC is dedicated to funding grants for initiatives and projects that focus on and impact diversity in the law school pipeline. Specifically, LSAC will consider proposals for projects that center on the experiences and needs of minoritized prelaw students, encourage and empower minoritized students to pursue legal education, and aim to increase the enrollment and success of minoritized students in law school. Proposals may also be submitted for research projects or other innovative initiatives. The primary focus is on minoritized candidates at community colleges or undergraduate institutions who are underrepresented in the legal profession and who face historical, social, political, economic, and educational barriers that constrict them. LSAC expects grants to be consistent with its mission, as outlined in LSAC’s Strategic Plan.
