Support Huerta Scholars

Support the next generation of Native lawyers!

The Huerta Scholarship provides vital support to Native law students attending the University of Arizona College of Law. Native students can realize their dreams of attending law school thanks to the support of Huerta Scholarship donors like you!

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, promote tribal self-determination and lead Native nation building efforts.

Your gift provides vital support and reduces the stress of starting law school by helping students pay for tuition, moving expenses, books and other expenses related to starting law school.

Please support the next generation of Huerta Scholars, Native law students who are passionate about championing the tribal sovereignty and Indigenous human rights. The disruption and financial hardship students continue to face because of COVID-19 make your support more important than ever.

Invest in the success of Native law students by donating to the Huerta Scholarship on #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving, November 30, 2021!
