The Pro Bono Scholars Program provides two to three $3,500 scholarships to second and third year students who commit to working a minimum of 300 hours during the academic year with the UT Law Pro Bono Program.  The scholars work closely with the Pro Bono Program Director to plan and implement pro bono projects and conduct research and outreach that furthers the mission of the program.  This year the scholars will help develop new initiatives to assist pro se divorce petitioners and U-Visa applicants among other projects. 

Scholars are selected through a competitive application process.   Selection criteria include management, communication, critical-thinking, and leadership skills as well as demonstrated commitment to pro bono service.

The application period is now closed.  For sample information about the April 2013 selection process, see:
