Scholarship Fund Gala

The San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association (SDLRLA) will hold their signature event on Tuesday November 30,2021 at The Guild Hotel in downtown San Diego. The SDLRLA Scholarship Fund Annual Gala draws hundreds of esteemed judges, attorneys, elected city, state and federal officials, and community leaders, to honor our awardees and celebrate our legal community.

For the past 10 years, the Scholarship Fund has awarded financial assistance to local law students that demonstrate academic achievement, community service, and financial need. Since 2007, the Scholarship Fund has awarded close to $500,000 to deserving law students. The scholarships are not limited to Latino students but include those who have made important contributions to the local community.
