Dale Minami Public Interest Fellowship
The Dale Minami Public Interest Fellowship was created in 2007 to provide modest fellowship awards to Berkeley Law (Boalt Hall) alumni who have shown a strong commitment to serving the public interest. Minami Fellows are selected for their diverse backgrounds, record of exceptional academic and professional accomplishment, leadership in community service, and commitment to social justice and public interest work. The award can be used to supplement annual income or used toward bar exam preparation expenses. Priority will be given to applicants who have worked with the Asian American Pacific Islander community. Individuals working in any range of public interest jobs, including government work, are invited to apply.

Steinger, Iscoe & Greene Law Scholarship for Child Advocates
We believe that attorneys stand in a unique place to be able to help families and individual victims of child abuse. While the damage that abuse causes can be life-long, a dedicated lawyer can help end abuse, establish legal protections for victims, win custody battles, and even secure compensation to provide medical treatment and therapy. These are the essential tools to protecting children and helping them manage and move past trauma as they grow.
Auger & Auger Disabled Scholar Award
As a personal injury law firm, our attorneys frequently represent families who are coping with the aftermath of serious injuries and disabling impairments. We observe firsthand the unique challenges that disabled men and women face and see the strength and perseverance necessary to overcome expectations. As part of our efforts to give back to the disabled community, Auger & Auger is sponsoring a $1,000 scholarship, given twice a year, to assist with tuition and expenses at a qualifying undergraduate institution.
Icing On The Ring Triumph Over Breast Cancer Scholarship
Like so many in the community, we at Icing On The Ring have witnessed the devastating effects of breast cancer and its ability to completely overturn a life. That is especially true when an individual is working hard to put themselves through school. Although all college students face difficult obstacles, we believe that a disease like cancer should not be allowed to derail an aspiring student’s dream. Our intention is to offset the financial burden to a student who is continuing to study despite their encounter with breast cancer with two $1000 scholarships, one in the Fall and the other in the Spring.
