Raymond G. Alvarado Scholarship

Promoting excellence in the Latino community.

The Raymond G. Alvarado Scholarship Fund annually provides financial assistance to Latino students interested in pursuing a career in the legal field and who have demonstrated leadership and involvement in the Latino community. The scholarship was established in recognition of the contributions and achievements of Raymond G. Alvarado, one of the first Latino attorneys in Orange County, CA. It promotes opportunities for continuing generations of Latino students and aspiring lawyers, helping them achieve excellence and thus follow in the footsteps of the scholarship’s namesake.

Scholarship Criteria

The Raymond G. Alvarado Scholarship is a subsidiary fund of the Hispanic Education Endowment Fund (HEEF), which has provided nearly $3 million in scholarships for Hispanic students to inspire, enhance, and improve access to higher education. The scholarship is open to students who have been admitted to, are attending, or are interested in attending law school in California. High-school and undergraduate applicants must have participated in pre-law programs or clubs, worked or volunteered at a local law firm in California, or been involved with a public law services agency and/or the Orange County Hispanic Bar Association.

The Scholarship’s Namesake

Raymond G. Alvarado (1936 – 2014) rose to the highest ranks in the legal profession as a co-founder of Frost Brown Todd’s legacy firm, AlvaradoSmith, one of the largest minority-owned law firms in California. During his lifetime, Mr. Alvarado was an accomplished artist and philanthropist who championed the pursuit of higher education among Latinos, particularly by mentoring those pursuing a career within the legal field.
