Description
Who Should Apply
The Hayzel B. Daniels Scholarship pays homage to the late Honorable Hayzel B. Daniels, the first African-American admitted to the practice of law in Arizona.  A community leader and civil rights activist, Judge Daniels fought to desegregate the Phoenix public schools before the United States Supreme Court struck down the “separate but equal” concept in the landmark decision of Brown v. Board of Education. During a long and well-respected legal career, Judge Daniels gave generously of his talents for the betterment of all people. To honor Judge Daniels, the Arizona Black Bar will continue to realize the vision and provides financial scholarships to African-American law students attending law school in Arizona who intend on practicing in Arizona.
