Endowed Scholarship Fund
Our Scholarship Fund
Slack-Méndez Law Firm has been a generous supporter of Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law and has established the Slack-Méndez Family Endowed Scholarship Fund. The Hispanic community is underrepresented in the State of Arizona. This endowed scholarship is intended to assist Hispanic law school students with financial need so that they may concentrate in their studies, complete their law degree, and help others.
Slack-Méndez Law Firm has also generously donated to the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law and in gratitude for the gifts, a Third Floor Meeting at the Law library has been named “Slack-Méndez Family” Meeting Room.
Congratulations to Carina Arellano as the
“2019 Slack-Mendez Family Endowed Scholarship” recipient. Best of luck in law school!
