Support the next generation of Native lawyers!

The Huerta Scholarship provides vital support to Native law students attending the University of Arizona Law who are passionate about championing the rights of Native American communities and individuals. Native students are able to realize their dreams of attending law school thanks to the support of Huerta Scholarship donors.

The Huerta Scholarship was established in 2014 in honor of Judge Lawrence Huerta. Judge Huerta, a member of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, was the first Native American student to graduate from University of Arizona Law (class of ’53) and be licensed to practice law in Arizona. Throughout his illustrious career, Judge Huerta worked tirelessly to increase access to education and promote tribal sovereignty.

Your gift will provide a vital lifeline to reduce the stress of starting law school by helping students pay for tuition, moving expenses, books, and university fees.

Invest in the success of Native law students by donating to the Huerta Scholarship on #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving, this December 3, 2019!
