Arent Fox offers a scholarship award of $15,000 to three first-year law students who are members of a diverse population that historically has been underrepresented in the legal profession.
The primary goals of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee are to recruit, retain and promote lawyers of color, women and LGBT lawyers, and to ensure that adequate firm resources are dedicated to their training, mentoring, coaching and business development.
We will interview scholarship applicants in February and announce the winners in March. Arent Fox’s 2014 Summer Program will last for 10 weeks; from May 19 through July 25, 2014. The summer associate salary is $3,000 per week, and the scholarship recipient will receive the $15,000 award in July 2014. All scholarship recipients are expected to participate in the 2014 Summer Program.
Award: We will award a $15,000 scholarship to three first-year law students in our Washington, New York, and Los Angeles office.
