Texas Appleseed, Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions©, and Texas attorneys supporting the Diversity Legal Scholars program believe that law schools should be accessible to all qualified students. This program helps minority law school applicants expand their law school options by awarding scholarships covering the full cost of a Kaplan (LSAT) preparation course. Texas Appleseed has awarded more than 300 of these scholarships since the program began in 1997.


Scholarship recipients must be Texas residents and apply to take the LSAT on the designated date that corresponds to their Application Round. Example: Round 1 scholarship recipients must take the June LSAT test.

What Others Are Saying

Despite an increase in capacity, law schools have been admitting fewer African-American and Mexican American students over the last 15 years. Shut Out, by Ronald Roach, 04.16.2009 from Diverse Online

"I took the LSAT in October 2013 and got a 164.  I then retook it in December and got 167.  These are the decisions from the schools I've applied to.  I'm still waiting to hear back from 8 schools, though I'll most likely go to UT.
UT- Accepted with $25K/year
SMU- Accepted with $30k/year
UH- Accepted with $20k/year
Still waiting on Duke, Northwestern, Cornell, UMich, Vanderbuilt, UCLA, USC, and Georgetown.  Thank you Texas Appleseed for giving me the opportunity to take a LSAT prep course, which without I would not be able to get into Law Schools I got into."
Sincerely Yours, Daniel, Diversity Legal Scholar Recipient 2013.

"I just wanted to extend my gratitude to everyone at Texas Appleseed for their support in this program.  With your help, I have successfully taken my LSAT.  Now, onto the next steps. Thank You."

- Tyler Brown, Diversity Legal Scholar Recipient - 2012

"I can't express my gratitude enough to your organization for being the primary support for my application to law school.  Without the Kaplan resource your organization provided me, I would never have been able to afford a prep course, or take the LSAT successfully."
- Marsha L. Perez, Diversity Scholar Recipient - 2010
