Diversity Legal Scholars


Texas Appleseed, Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions©, and Texas attorneys supporting the Diversity Legal Scholars program believe that law schools should be accessible to all qualified students. This program helps low-income people of color expand their law school options by awarding scholarships covering the full cost of a Kaplan (LSAT) preparation course.
