Since its inception in 1997, bringing outstanding students with a passion for public service to the University of Miami School of Law has been the goal of the Miami Scholars Public Interest Program. Incoming students with exceptional academic and public interest achievements have the opportunity for selection for this prestigious scholarship cohort program.

Miami Scholars receive:

  • Full tuition scholarship and one summer of support for public interest work
  • Assistance with securing summer public interest internships
  • Networking with public interest lawyers and peer mentoring by upper-division Miami Scholars
  • Participation in programming as part of a team of students dedicated to public interest
  • Individualized advising on courses and career planning
  • Specialized trainings focused on social justice

Miami Scholars serve as social justice leaders on our campus throughout numerous student organizations and individual projects and initiatives. They contribute meaningfully to creating a pro bono ethic among their peers. Many Scholars serve on the Public Interest Leadership Board (PILB), developing and implementing outstanding programs and projects dedicated to social justice, alumni/development, community engagement, education and career development. Miami Scholars are actively engaged leaders with a commitment to social justice, community engagement, and advocacy.
