LSAT Preparation Grant Program

King County Bar Association LSAT Prep Grant Program

Applications now closed!


Mission Statement: The goal of King County Bar Association’s LSAT Prep Grant Program is to improve the quality of services provided by Washington attorneys by increasing the diversity of the legal profession. The KCBA LSAT Prep Program meets this goal by awarding a number of diverse applicants LSAT preparatory courses and a limited number of LSAT registration fee grants. Since 2018, KCBA has awarded 31 LSAT prep grants to aspiring law students in the region from diverse backgrounds. Applicants must be willing and able to commit to complete the LSAT course work, and sit for an upcoming LSAT.

Preference will be given to applicants with strong academic performance and those committed to practicing in King County. Since the goal of our program is to increase access to legal education and the legal profession, a commitment and ability to attend a JD program is a prerequisite.

Please submit completed applications to Sydney at Grant award recipients will be notified by July 31st. For questions, please contact Dua at

The 2022-2023 LSAT Prep Grant cycle is officially closed. Check back in Spring 2023 for more information on our next Prep Grant Cycle. Congratulations to this year’s awardees!
