Arnold & Porter Diversity Scholarship
We will accept applications for the 2015 Arnold & Porter LLP Diversity Scholarship February 15 through March 15.
The firm awards $10,000 scholarships to highly qualified first-year students. Each scholarship is paid to the recipient’s law school to help finance his or her tuition costs during the second academic year. Qualified applicants are currently-enrolled first-year law students at an ABA-accredited law school who (a) contribute to the diverse background of their law school’s student body; (b) demonstrate strong academic achievement; and (c) demonstrate an interest in promoting diversity in the legal profession. The firm also may take into account a student’s need for financial assistance, but such need is not required.
To apply for the Arnold & Porter LLP Diversity Scholarship, please submit a current resume, official law school transcript and a personal statement (limited to 500 words) that describes your personal background and the importance of diversity in your life and the legal profession. An applicant also may submit a separate statement demonstrating the financial need of a scholarship to help finance his or her law school education, but such statement is not required. Applications should be submitted to Emilie Lawson, Professional Development Manager, no later than March 15, 2015 through the link below.
