Piedad and Raul Castro Scholarship Application 2021

The East Bay La Raza Lawyers Association (EBLRLA) Scholarship Fund is proud to announce the establishment of the Piedad and Raul Castro Scholarship, an annual $5,000 scholarship funded by the Honorable Arturo Castro, Judge with the Superior Court of Alameda County, in honor of his parents:

“This scholarship is dedicated to my parents, who, alongside countless other immigrant families, personify the perseverance, sacrifice, and selflessness of those who are dedicated to advancing future generations, with no thought or expectation of personal gain. By giving back in their names, the spirit of their sacrifices will live on, supporting young minds who are equally dedicated to making the world a better place.”

The Piedad and Raul Castro Scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding law student on pace to graduate by spring 2021 and is designed to assist with expenses related to preparing for the California Bar Exam and transitioning to formal practice as an attorney. (Judge Castro will not be involved in the selection process.)
