HNBA FUND ANNOUNCES NEW SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITY: OBLEDO MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED.
Application Instructions Applications are available here and the deadline is 11:59 pm on October 15, 2014 (eastern time). Applications and their attachments will only be accepted online. Hard copies submitted by mail or fax will not be accepted or reviewed by The HNBA Fund. The Fund will not grant exceptions or deadline extensions. You are strongly encouraged to prepare and submit your application ahead of the deadline. Please also know that the online application function will time out after 30 minutes and so you are further encouraged to prepare your application materials in advance of completing the online application. The HNBA Fund will award one Mario G. Obledo Memorial Scholarship annually to a deserving student enrolled at the time of application at an American Bar Association accredited school of law.
The Fund's Board of Directors established the Mario G. Obledo Memorial Scholarship in 2010, shortly after Dr. Obledo’s passing earlier that same year. Obledo was a remarkable champion for Latino civil rights and the development of Latino attorneys. He co-founded the HNBA and MALDEF and led several civil rights organizations, both Hispanic and mainstream. The Fund's scholarship program is a fitting tribute to Obledo and will be awarded to a Hispanic law student that best exemplifies the life, aspirations and commitments of Mario Obledo. The Obledo Memorial Scholarship will be funded at $10,000 as a single award to a deserving law student enrolled at the time of application at an American Bar Association accredited school of law.
