3L Daniel Peraza Soles Named the Recipient of the Alexander Memorial Scholarship

The recipient of the Rhoda S. and Albert M. Alexander Memorial Scholarship for 2023-24 is 3L Daniel Peraza Soles. Peraza Soles was selected after a competitive application process by the Alexander Memorial Scholarship Committee to receive this significant scholarship in recognition of his commitment and dedication to public service.

He has focused his time at the College of Law by externing for the Office of the Public Defender for the Ninth Judicial Circuit of Florida in Summer 2022 and interning for the Federal Public Defender of the Northern District of New York this past summer.  In part due to these experiences, Peraza Soles has accepted a post-graduate position with the Colorado State Public Defender.

“My summer positions have solidified my desire to work in public service, providing much-needed legal counsel to those who cannot afford a lawyer,” says Peraza Soles. “I want to thank the Alexander family for their dedication to supporting College of Law students in their pursuits, in particular those seeking a career in public service.”

The Rhoda S. and Albert M. Alexander Memorial Scholarship was established by College of Law Board of Advisors Member and Syracuse University Trustee Richard M. Alexander L’82, Chairman of Arnold & Porter, and his wife Emily.
