MCBA Legal Education Scholarship

The MCBA Legal Education Scholarship program provides funds to financially disadvantaged students pursuing a law school degree with scholarships up to $5,000. Funded with contributions from the MCBA, it is a collaboration with 10,000 Degrees, and the Marin Community Foundation (MCF) which administers the fund. Established in 2010, the MCBA Legal Education Scholarship program was launched with a $50,000 contribution to provide financial assistance to deserving students.

Each year, the MCBA Scholarship Committee awards scholarships from the pool of qualified applicants. 10,000 Degrees representatives will process and administer the scholarships.
