2021 applications are closed. Thanks to everyone who applied. We'll announce the winner by the end of September.


At 7Sage, our mission is to make legal education accessible, but talk is cheap and school is expensive. We’re putting our money where our mouth is and offering a series of awards to seven aspiring law students. Our goal is to support aspiring lawyers who will work toward a more just future and to help increase diversity at top law schools. At least half of the awards will go to under-represented minorities.

The winner will receive a scholarship of $7,000 to defray the cost of a legal education, a pro bono 12-month subscription to 7Sage’s Ultimate+ LSAT prep package, and a pro bono Admissions Consulting package.

One runner-up will receive a scholarship of $1,000, a pro bono 12-month subscription to 7Sage’s Ultimate+ LSAT prep package, and a pro bono Admissions Consulting package.

Five other runners-up will receive pro bono LSAT prep along with consulting or editing services. Anyone who purchases a 7Sage service and goes on to win that service will be refunded.
