    The application for The Terry M. Louie Founder's Scholarship has now opened! 

    MNAPABA awards a summer law scholarship of approximately $1,500 to law students or recent law graduates who will, through a summer internship, perform legal work for underserved communities or otherwise leverage their legal training for the betterment of the public or Asian Pacific American communities. In alignment with our commitment to support those contributing significantly to public service, preferential consideration will be given to candidates accepting positions with a governmental, nonprofit, or public interest organization. Preference will also be given to those directly serving Minnesota and/or Asian Pacific American communities.

    This scholarship is named the Terry M. Louie Founder's Scholarship to honor the legacy of Terry Louie, a founding member of MNAPABA and the organization's first president. Mr. Louie was an indomitable spirit who, along with a handful of like-minded APA attorneys, saw the need to band together and organize as an affinity bar organization. That organization has flourished to what MNAPABA is now, and we are forever grateful for Terry's contributions and influence.

    To access the application, please click here. 

    The application closes on July 1, 2024

    All applications must be submitted to mnapaba@gmail.com.
