"The Equal Justice Scholarship fundamentally shaped my law school experience. It gave me a significant role in the constantly growing public interest community at Texas Law and provided opportunities for me to meet advocates from across the country. And it has let me move into a career in public service without the burden of substantial financial debt. Moreover, the mentorship and guidance I received as an Equal Justice Scholar enriched my education immeasurably."
