The LEAP Center works to support students who are working to achieve academic excellence.  The Center does this by offering resources and opportunities for highly-motivated students.  In addition, the LEAP Center offers small scholarships to its Ambassadors, provides support to the Austin Interns, and offers a small scholarship to pre-law students, when funding permits.

Pre-Law Scholarship:  The pre-law scholarship is a small award ($100-$300) designed to help students' defray the costs associated with preparing for and applying to law school.  Such costs include an LSAT prep course, paying to register for the LSAT, costs of law-school application fees, and other related costs.  The scholarship committee will consider GPA, extra-curricular activities, participation in LEAP Center activities, membership in the Pre-Law Society, and enrollment in an LSAT Prep course, as well as other factors that relate to a students’ potential for attending law school.  

The number of scholarships offered depends on funding.

Deadline: The deadline for the 2018 scholarships is May 15.  Awards will be announced on a rolling basis and are limited to available funds.

The pre-law scholarship can be accessed here.  It should be submitted to the LEAP Center Director, Mike Yawn.  Students can give it to the student worker in CHSS 490 or put it in Professor Yawn's door tray in CHSS 477.
