Each year we provide scholarships to outstanding students who display academic excellence and early signs of leadership and a commitment to social justice. Through the NAACP Scholars and Professionals: Internships, Ready Youth and Employment (N-SPIRE) program, we partner with organizations to offer a range of opportunities across the country.


Black Females with Hands Locked in Protest


The road to civil rights and social justice isn't an easy one. Our awards recognize the activists on the front lines and in courtrooms producing hard-won, consistent results.

While my legal knowledge increased, my experience was much more expansive than I could have imagined. My time as a law fellow allowed me to reflect on national issues and legal strategies to address those national issues. This reflection completely changed how I approach legal questions, recognizing the law is not just individual cases, but the law is all about individuals. Working with the NAACP is working with something bigger than yourself.
