For the last 8 years HL Central has awarded the T.J. Duane Community Development Grants annually to students who have demonstrated a commitment to improving student life at Harvard Law School.  HL Central will award up to ten $500 grants throughout the school year to individual students or student organizations who propose community-enhancing projects or events.  The $500 will go towards the costs of carrying out the initiative. In order to be considered, proposed events should be open to the HLS community generally and can include everything from charitable events to social activities.  Things like 1L Cup and the WLA Fashion Swapaganza for charity are good examples of events that would qualify.
 
We would like to congratulate our most recent winner and invite YOU to apply here for future grants!
