"The Equal Justice Scholarship provided me an immediate connection to the public interest community at the Law School. The opportunity to serve on the Student Advisory Board of the William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law allowed me a voice in decisions regarding the development of the University of Texas as a leader in public interest law. The Equal Justice Scholarship also greatly lessened the financial concerns that would normally face a law student interested in pursuing a career in public interest law. I am grateful to be free to make career decisions without feeling the burden of large student loan debt."
