LGBTQ Scholarships

Scarinci Hollenbeck Scholarship for LGBTQ Student Advocates

Scarinci Hollenbeck has always been a place of inclusion for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender attorneys and staff. Our attorneys have worked on important LGBTQ pro bono issues, including the issue of marriage equality in New Jersey. The Scarinci Hollenbeck Scholarship is one of the first of its kind and supports our commitment to the advancement of LGBTQ issues within the state. This scholarship is available to any student attending a New Jersey law school that shares and demonstrates Scarinci Hollenbeck’s commitment to LGBTQ issues. Candidates need not be a member of the LGBTQ community to apply. Sponsored by the New Jersey State Bar Association, this annual scholarship serves to promote diversity in the legal profession and advance the legal needs of those within the New Jersey LGBTQ community.

Applications can be found in the financial aid office at any New Jersey law school and are made available at the beginning of the second semester. For more information on the Scarinci Hollenbeck Scholarship, please visit the New Jersey Bar Association Foundation website.
