Improving Law Scholarship

Students who are pursuing higher education at an accredited college/university or law school are invited to apply for the 2021 Improving Law Scholarship.

Students from all areas of study can now submit their essays by filling out the Application Form on this page.

The I Stand With Immigrants Initiative

The Improve Our Country’s Laws Scholarship is just one way that FileRight seeks to promote and better the lives of immigrants. We are also a proud partner of the I Stand With Immigrants Initiative, an organization that amplifies the narratives of real immigrants to show that immigration makes our country better.

Improving the legal system starts with activism and education, which is why FileRight offers the scholarship to all who are authorized to work or study in the United States. FileRight also sponsors an annual event called the I Stand With Immigrants Day of Action to promote educational opportunities for immigrants.
