DRI is holding its annual Law Student Diversity Scholarship program that is open to incoming second- and third-year African American, Hispanic, Asian and Native American students. Incoming second- and third-year female law students are also eligible, regardless of race or ethnicity. Incoming 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.
The purpose of the scholarships are 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.
The two scholarships are each in the amount of $10,000. Read more about the scholarships here
