SCHOLARSHIP & FELLOWSHIP COMMITTEE


The Scholarship & Fellowship Committee is responsible for interviewing applicants and selecting the recipients of various scholarships provided by APABA and other generous sponsors and organizations.  The purpose of our scholarships is to recognize law students who have demonstrated leadership and service to the Asian Pacific American community, who overcame personal hardships or challenges, or who have shown excellence and achievement in law school.  The recipients of our scholarships have volunteered at various non-profit organizations throughout the Bay Area, and many of our past recipients have volunteered at organizations dedicated to providing legal services for the Asian Pacific American community.  In past years, these scholarships have been made possible through funds raised from our annual banquet, generous sponsors such as LTL Attorneys LLP, and matching donations from other organizations such as BALIF.

Message from Co-Chairs:

APABA Silicon Valley is proud to offer its Equal Justice Scholarship to accomplished law students throughout the greater San Francisco Bay Area who have shown their commitment to serving the public interest and helping the Asian Pacific American community. Each year, we are truly humbled by the caliber of law students applying for our scholarships. We are extremely fortunate to be able to continue offering financial support to these incredibly deserving students, and are able to only through the generosity of the legal community in Silicon Valley. Our main source of funding comes from APABA Silicon Valley's Annual Gala, so we encourage everyone to show your continued support for us and for these students and help celebrate their achievements by attending our Gala!
