About the Scholarship

SacLegal, Sacramento’s LGBTQ+ Bar Association, annually presents one or more law student scholarships in conjunction with the Sacramento Unity Bar.  To be eligible, we typically require (1) Proof of current enrollment as a law student in good standing at a law school located in Sacramento or Yolo County, (2) Completion of an application including two short essays, and (3) Ability to attend the presentation dinner

We usually accept scholarship applications from late September to mid-October, and the awards are typically presented at the annual Unity Bar Dinner in Sacramento, which usually takes place in November.
