Additional Information

The OUTLaws Civil Rights Scholarship at Seattle University School of Law provides support for a student actively committed to and engaged in public interest law that benefits the lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) community.

Eligible candidates include Seattle University School of Law 1Ls, 2Ls, and applicants for admission. Students seeking admission are encouraged to apply and remain eligible if they are accepted to Seattle University School of Law and enroll.

Applicants should submit a résumé along with a brief cover letter explaining their work and future plans/interests. The ideal candidate will have a demonstrated track record and history of working on significant, topical issues that he or she plans to build on further throughout and after law school, once equipped with a law degree. Special value will be given to work within diverse communities, such as LGBT immigrants, or underserved areas. Examples of public interest work might include traditional civil rights, immigrants, medical care with youth, the disabled, the elderly, low-income housing, a legislative forum, or international work.

A committee consisting of both the dean and associate dean of students at Seattle University School of Law, a member of the Greater Seattle LGBT community, and a member of the faculty will select the recipient. A scholarship of $5,000 will be awarded as part of the recipient’s financial aid package for one academic year. A student can receive the award more than once but must reapply each year. Applications—both the cover letter and the résumé—should be emailed to Associate Dean Donna Deming at dcdeming@seattleu.edu no later than March 1.
