"The Center’s Legal Education Diversity Pipeline Grant Program annually awards grants to programs that conduct effective interventions and approaches to enhance access to legal education for students from diverse backgrounds, specifically historically underrepresented minority students and students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. To be considered for funding, a proposal must seek to improve directly access to legal education for historically underrepresented minority students and students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.  Measurement and evaluation are essential components for demonstrating the effectiveness and scalability of interventions, thus they are key factors when deciding what grants we make. The Center also encourages applications from programs that display a collaborative approach and strong partnerships with other organizations to achieve the goal of enhancing access to legal education for students from diverse backgrounds."
