2017 – 2018 Public Service Scholars (l-r): Leah Rodriguez, 19; Sarah Mae Jennings, 18; Marcus Martinez, 19; Alex Shahrestani, 18

Each year the Public Service Scholars Program provides scholarships to second and third year students with a demonstrated commitment to studying and working in public service and promoting it at the Law School. Public service for this program includes legal work in non-profit, government, and legislative settings. Scholars are selected based on their commitment to public service, financial need, and academic credentials.  The four 2017-2018 recipients were awarded scholarships of $3,500.

Scholars work closely with the Justice Center and serve on the Center’s Student Advisory Board, which meets regularly to advise the Center about programming, speakers, and outreach to student organizations.  The Scholars attend and assist with events and conferences sponsored by the Center, publicize Center events and initiatives, serve as mentors to students and liaisons to student organizations, and are encouraged to initiate programs and projects.
