LSAC PLUS Grant Applications

The Law School Admission Council, Inc. (LSAC) has a longstanding commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in legal education and the legal profession. One of the ways in which LSAC demonstrates its commitment to DEI is through its sponsorship of the notable pipeline development program, the Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Program. LSAC intends to continue to promote access and equity in legal education by sponsoring programs that aim to support minoritized students along their journey to law school and a legal career. Minoritized students are members of groups that face social, political, economic, and educational barriers that constrict them. For example, women are not minorities in legal education today, but they are one of many minoritized groups. For purposes of the PLUS Program, minoritized groups include, but are not limited to, the following categories of individuals: women, students of color, first-generation college students, students with disabilities, students of low socioeconomic status, and LGBTQ+, genderqueer or nonbinary, and gender nonconforming students.

This Request for Proposal (RFP) outlines the history of the PLUS Program, the guiding objectives behind this new call for innovative prelaw pipeline programs, the PLUS Program requirements, an overview of the grant process for the PLUS Program, and other factors pertinent to law schools submitting proposals for grants to administer the PLUS Program. We strongly encourage law schools interested in applying to administer the PLUS Program in 2022 to submit a Letter of Interest before preparing a full proposal.
