Opportunity Details

Accompanying this letter is the Hon. Mario G. Olmos Memorial Scholarship Application. Since 1980, La Raza Lawyers Association of Fresno (LRLA) has awarded scholarships to deserving law students who have demonstrated academic achievement, leadership ability, involvement in the Latino community, financial need, and ties to California’s Central Valley. Subsequently, beginning in 1991, LRLA has awarded these scholarships in memory of the Honorable Superior Court Judge Mario G. Olmos, a Fresno County jurist and respected community leader who was tragically killed in an automobile accident in 1990 at the age of 43. Judge Olmos epitomized the ideals of honor, courage, leadership, and public service through his achievements as a student, volunteer, lawyer, and judge. We will announce the names of the 2023 scholarship recipients at an annual banquet or as determined by our Executive Committee
