2018 Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship
As part of the firm’s commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in the legal profession, we award $10,000 scholarships to highly-qualified first-year students. Each scholarship is paid directly to a recipient’s law school to help finance tuition costs for the second academic year.Criteria
Qualified applicants are currently enrolled, first-year law students at ABA-accredited law schools who:
- Contribute to the diverse background of a law school's student body
- Demonstrate strong academic achievement
- Demonstrate an interest in promoting diversity and inclusion in the legal profession
Applicants must submit a current resume, official law school transcript, and a personal statement (limited to 500 words) that describes the role of diversity in their personal background; their views on the intersections of diversity, inclusion, and equity; or how they have demonstrated a commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.
An applicant may also submit a separate statement (limited to 500 words) demonstrating a financial need for a scholarship, but such statement is not required because need is not an official criterion for this merit-based award.
The 2018 Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship deadline has passed.
