    Students!!!  Please make note of this fantastic opportunity:

     The Community Outreach Team at Upsolve, a national legal services nonprofit funded by the federal government and Harvard University. I’m reaching out to introduce a scholarship that we’d like to publicize to students at Scholars Academy. We'd like to hear from as many students as possible and so we'd really appreciate it if you could encourage some of your students to apply.

     As a nonprofit that uses tech to help Americans access their civil rights, we are passionate about social innovation. To empower the next generation of change-makers, we are encouraging students to submit short essays (500-1000 words) on how society can improve access to justice. The winning essay will receive $2,500.

     We were wondering if you could help us get the word out about this opportunity by posting our scholarship page link on your scholarships page. I want to invite you to visit our website for more information about our scholarship program at https://upsolve.org/scholarship/. We’d be honored if you could help share it with your students and possibly include it on your website.

     These are the eligibility requirements:

    • Must be currently attending university or college or set to attend during 2021-2022 academic year;
    • 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 two-page essay on your ideas for a more equitable legal system) by March 31, 2021

    Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!!
