Bradley Arant Boult Cummings, LLP – 2L Diversity Scholarship
Deadline: March 15, 2016
Bradley Arant Boult Cummings will award two scholarships to two deserving students. A scholarship (up to $10,000) will be awarded to a student in his or her second year of law school. This scholarship will be available to a law student attending ABA accredited law schools in the United States. The scholarship will be paid directly to the student or to his/her law school.
In connection with receiving the scholarship, recipients will be required to clerk in one of BABC’s seven offices for at least six weeks of the summer after the scholarship is awarded. BABC will do its best to honor the scholarship recipient’s first choice for office placement but maintains the right to make the final decision.
Student interested in applying for the scholarship should submit:
- an online summer associate application
- a supplemental personal statement (limit to 750 words in PDF format) discussing the importance of diversity in the legal profession and the way(s) in which the applicant’s receipt of the scholarship would further BABC’s desire to improve diversity in the legal profession. The personal statement may also be used to apprise BABC of any personal, work or other circumstances that the applicant believes BABC should consider. Please submit the personal statement via the online application in the section titled “Attachments”.
NOTE : BABC does not accept email applications. You must complete the online summer associate application and include the supplemental PDF personal statement in order to be considered for the diversity scholarship. Please do not email applications.
Award: Up to $10,000 for a 2L student, plus summer clerk position.
