Scholarship Committee

SABABC recognizes the high cost of obtaining a law degree and the desire to assist in breaking down barriers to entry into law school. Each year, SABABC grants scholarship and bursary awards to law students of South Asian ancestry or law students with a demonstrated interest in the South Asian community who are currently enrolled in first or second year in the Faculty of Law at the University of British Columbia, the University of Victoria or Thompson Rivers University.

The SABABC Scholarship Committee is responsible for ensuring that the availability of its scholarships and bursaries is made known to the law schools and applicable organizations each year. Following receipt of the applications, the committee assesses each applicant based on community involvement and academic merit, in addition to reviewing an original short essay for scholarship applicants and a demonstration of financial need for bursary applicants. Once the committee has made its selection based on merit and the quality of applications received, it then makes a recommendation to the directors and upon receipt of board approval it advises the applicants.
