Faegre Baker Daniels Diversity Fellowship
Deadline: September 6, 2013 [2014 information is currently not available]
To be eligible for the Faegre Baker Daniels Diversity Fellowship, applicants must be enrolled in the J.D. program at an accredited U.S. law school, be in their second year of law school and be interested in a summer associate position in one of our U.S. offices. In addition, they must be committed to contributing meaningfully to diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.
A key element of the diversity scholarship program is a comprehensive mentorship designed to help recipients transition from student to law firm associate. Each recipient will be matched with a Faegre & Benson lawyer, who will start mentoring him or her even before the summer begins. Mentors will help students acclimate both to the firm and to the legal community at large.
Scholarship recipients will be chosen partly on the basis of a short essay that explores how diversity has influenced their lives and how it impacts the legal profession.
Award: $10,000 stipend at the conclusion of their summer associate position
