NAPABA Law Foundation Scholarship Recipients

For nearly 20 years, NLF has announced the recipients of their annual law scholarships at the annual dinner of the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association Convention. Through thoughtful and generous giving from our wonderful sponsors and private donors, NLF has worked hard to serve Asian Pacific American (APA) lawyers, students and communities. NLF gives thousands of dollars in scholarships every year to law students who have demonstrated a strong commitment to civil rights and equality in their communities. NLF's scholarship programs are critical to helping promote the careers of promising young lawyers throughout the country, and through them, legal education is made more affordable for deserving students.
