Upsolve really made this process better. I was feeling overwhelmed at first, but the Upsolve software guided me through it. I really enjoyed the side notes about successful people who filed bankruptcy, but still created a successful life. Thank you to the whole Upsolve team. Keep up the good work.

About Upsolve

Upsolve is a national 501(c)(3) legal services nonprofit. Our mission is to help low-income families who cannot afford lawyers access Chapter 7 bankruptcy for free, using an online web app. Spun out of Harvard Law School, our team includes lawyers, engineers, and judges funders that include the U.S. government, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and leading foundations. It's one of the greatest civil rights injustices of our time that low-income families can’t access their basic rights when they can’t afford to pay for help. Combining direct services and advocacy, we’re fighting this injustice.

The Upsolve Access to Justice Scholarship

At Upsolve, we know just how important students are for ensuring a future legal system that’s equitable and accessible. Upsolve itself started as a university project, relying on university professors for mentorship and students for team members. 

To encourage students to brainstorm ideas for changes they’d like to see, we’ve set up a scholarship. We aim to encourage students to focus on ways they think our society can improve access to justice. We welcome a two-page essay on your ideas for the future by email.

The essay that we find most inspiring will receive $2,500, awarded by June 1, 2021. To apply, please email scholarships@upsolve.org by March 31, 2021. 

Upsolve Access to Justice Scholarship Criteria

In order to be eligible for the $2,500 scholarship, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be a current high school senior, a full-time college student, or a graduate student;

  • Must apply via email and provide their name, university or college, major and expected graduation month and year;

  • Must be in good standing with their current or prospective institution;

  • Provide their application (a 500 to 1,000 word essay on your ideas for a more equitable legal system) by March 31, 2021.

If you have any questions, please reach out to our scholarship coordinator Ivetty Estepan at ivetty@upsolve.org
