Scholarship for Indigenous Students
The Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto has long recognized that Indigenous people are underrepresented in the legal profession and seeks to increase the number of Indigenous lawyers and judges across the country. To that end, we are excited to announce the first Law Youth Summer Program Scholarship for Indigenous High School Students in partnership with the Indigenous Initiatives Office.
First Nation, Métis and Inuit high school students with an interest in exploring the legal profession and Canadian law in the areas of criminal law, law and politics, trial advocacy, corporate law and international law are invited to apply before June 30 at midnight EST. Please note that the program will be delivered online synchronously and that Indigenous law and legal traditions will not be taught.
The Canadian Hispanic Bar Association (CHBA) is committed in promoting and advancing a more diverse and inclusive legal profession for Hispanic and Latinx students.
The CHBA Scholarship for the Law Youth Summer Program at the University of Toronto will be granted to support high school students with an interest in exploring the legal profession and the legal field in the areas of criminal law, law and politics, trial advocacy, corporate law and international law.
With the support of our members, the CHBA has committed to raise funds to support at least one student who identifies as Hispanic or Latinx to attend one module of the Youth Summer Program at the University of Toronto.
The Toronto Catholic District School Board is offering a number of scholarships for students currently enrolled in grades 10, 11 and 12 to participate in the Law YSP.
