The summer associate salary is $3,000 per week, and the scholarship recipient will receive the $15,000 award in July 2016. All scholarship recipients are expected to participate in the 2016 Summer Program, as well as attend the "Leadership Council on Legal Diversity" Conference for 1L Scholars in Chicago, IL.

We will interview scholarship applicants in February and announce the winners in March 2016.

Please Note: We do not have any openings for first-year law students outside of the Diversity Scholarship Program. If you do not meet the Program’s eligibility requirements, we encourage you to apply in August 2016, when we begin second-year law student recruitment.
