SAN PEDRO, Calif., April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Walker Advertising with Los Defensores invites Latino students who are currently enrolled in an accredited California law school to apply for their bi-annual scholarship. Three applicants will be selected to receive $5,000 each to help pay for their tuition and other law school expenses.
While the Latino population in California continues to grow (currently 37%), only 4% of California's lawyers are Latinos. The three scholarship awards are being offered with goals of increasing the percentage of dedicated Latino attorneys, and to empower and encourage Latinos who intend to serve their community as a lawyer.
"My commitment to helping the community access expert attorneys is as strong today as when I founded the company more than 30 years ago," said Walker Advertising Founder Mary Ann Walker.
To apply, students are required to submit the following documents:
- A complete application form
- A current résumé
- Official transcripts for undergraduate and law schools
- A personal statement up to 1,000 words that includes information related to personal background, service to the Latino community, and financial need
- A letter of recommendation from someone in the legal community
Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 in law school or undergrad if they are in the first year of law school. Submissions must be postmarked by May 31, 2017 for this scholarship cycle.
Only applicants with completed submissions will be considered, and the three winners will be contacted via email. To learn more or download the application form, please visit www.walkeradvertising.com/scholarship.
