Meet Our Wilf Scholars

The Wilf Scholars work closely with faculty leaders on the front lines of today’s most important civil rights challenges, including civil rights, immigration rights, racial justice, educational equity, housing rights, and access to justice for children and families.

Meet Our Wilf Scholars

Established through a generous gift by the Wilf Family Foundations, the Wilf Impact Scholars Program selects an annual cohort of New York Law School students who bring diversity, talent, and dedication to public interest careers.

From the time they enter law school, Wilf Scholars are immersed in the world of public interest practice, benefitting from NYLS’s specialized public interest advising, gaining connections to public interest practitioners and alumni, working closely with faculty and staff involved in real-world cutting-edge social justice issues, and developing the skills needed to excel in their careers.
