Upsolve Access to Justice Scholarship

At Upsolve, we know just how important students are for ensuring a future legal system that’s equitable and accessible. Upsolve itself started as a university project, relying on university professors for mentorship and students for team members. To encourage students to brainstorm ideas for changes they’d like to see, we’ve set up a scholarship. We aim to encourage students to focus on ways they think our society can improve access to justice. We welcome a two-page essay on your ideas for the future by email.

The essay that we find most inspiring will receive $2,500, awarded by June 1, 2021. To apply, please email by March 31, 2021.

In order to be eligible for the $2,500 scholarship, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be a current high school senior, a full-time college student, or a graduate student;
  • Must apply via email and provide their name, university or college, major and expected graduation month and year;
  • Must be in good standing with their current or prospective institution;
  • Provide their application (a 500 to 1,000 word essay on your ideas for a more equitable legal system) by March 31, 2021.
