Scholarship

In furtherance of the goal of supporting survivors of abuse with the costs of obtaining a legal education and increasing the number of future lawyers committed to careers in domestic violence advocacy and law reform, the inaugural SOAR for Justice Scholarship awards $500 - $1000 to qualified law students with proven track records in social justice.  Additionally, SOAR is proud to confer a $1000 - $1500 Bar Exam Award to help defray the costs of taking the bar exam for eligible survivors of economic abuse.
