The Marshall-Motley Scholars Program (MMSP) is a groundbreaking commitment to invest in a new generation of civil rights lawyers trained to provide legal advocacy on behalf of black communities throughout the South. Through scholarship support, legal fellowships, and professional mentoring, the MMSP aids in equipping and preparing these aspiring lawyers as they pursue racial justice and equity in that region of the country. Over the next two decades, this ambitious and unique program is committed to creating the next generation of racial justice advocates through the development of 50 new civil rights lawyers. To date, 20 scholarships have been granted with over $2 million awarded.
Our Marshall Motley Scholars representative will be available to speak with students about the application process and provide more details about the program.
