The NAACP Legal Defense Fund recently announced a $40 million scholarship program to support a new generation of civil rights lawyers who will pursue racial justice across the South following law school graduation. Recipients of the new Marshall-Motley Scholars Program will have their legal education fully funded, then complete a two-year fellowship and spend at least eight years doing racial justice and civil rights work in the South. The program, made possible by the generosity of a single anonymous donor, envisions supporting 50 students. USA Today has the story from the Associated Press.
