DRI announces its annual Law Student Diversity Scholarship program, open to rising (2016-17) second- and third-year African American, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, LGBT and Multi-Racial students. The goal of these scholarships is to provide financial assistance to two worthy law students from ABA-accredited law schools to promote in a tangible way, the DRI Diversity Statement of Principle.
All rising second- and third-year female law students are also eligible, regardless of race or ethnicity. Any other rising second- and third-year law students who come from backgrounds that would add to the cause of diversity, regardless of race or gender, are eligible to apply.
To qualify for this scholarship, a candidate must be a full-time student. Evening students also qualify for consideration if they have completed one-third or more of the total credit hours required for a degree by the applicant's law school.
Two scholarships in the amount of $10,000 each will be awarded to applicants who best meet the following criteria:
- Demonstrated academic excellence
- Service to the profession
- Service to the community
- Service to the cause of diversity
Applications must be received by DRI no later than Wednesday, March 30, 2016.
You can apply here.
