In 2021, the Coronel-Endaya Foundation was a Community Sponsor and Partner for the Filipino-American Lawyers of San Diego (FALSD) scholarship program.
FALSD is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization dedicated to advancing Filipino American legal professionals and the Asian Pacific American community. FALSD seeks to promote and advocate the interest of its community by preserving and fostering culture, heritage, and diversity.
Each year the FALSD awards 3 scholarships to eligible individuals who will take the California State Bar Examination. The scholarships will assist in covering the cost of the California Bar Examination. Selection factors include, but are not limited to: financial need; academic achievement, work experience, and extracurricular activities; achievement in the face of adversity; past, current, and future public service to the Asian/Pacific Islander community and other diverse communities, including past or current participation in FALSD; post-law school goals; domicile (residence plus intent to remain) in San Diego; and commitment to furthering FALSD’s mission statement. This year's 2021 recipients included ROLAINE CASTRO, who is a dedicated volunteer for the San Diego County Public Defender's Office, FRANCIS CARLOTA, who has interned with Judge Kenneth J. Medel of the Superior Court of San Diego County of California, and DANICA HERNANDEZ, who is first generation college student and received a Distinguished Advocate Award and competed in the Thomas Tang Moot Court Competition where she and her partner were awarded First Place Best Brief in all of California. All recipients are committed to fighting for our most vulnerable, indigent communities.
The Coronel-Endaya Foundation was acknowledged as a Community Sponsor and Partner during the FALSD 43rd Annual Gala on February 11, 2021.
