HABA LSAT PREP COURSE SCHOLARSHIP

The Hmong American Bar Association (HABA) invites the community to submit applications to be considered for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) preparation course scholarship. Strong LSAT scores can lead to law school scholarships, highly competitive law school applications, and a greater likelihood of acceptance into law school. Additionally, HABA is committed to diversifying the legal field by aiding law school hopefuls at the earliest stages of their legal career. This scholarship is intended to remove the financial barrier of a LSAT preparation course for a potential law student who cannot afford to pay for the course. The scholarship will be a direct payment from HABA to a LSAT preparation course provider on behalf of the scholarship recipient.

Applications due by May 30, 2018, 12 Midnight Central Time, submitted by email to haba.minn@gmail.com, subject line: ”HABA LSAT PREP COURSE SCHOLARSHIP”.
