     The 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 scholarships@upsolve.org by March 31, 2021.
