We are pleased to announce the 2015 Dorsey & Whitney Diversity Fellowship program! This is the tenth year that Dorsey has offered the Diversity Fellowship.

Dorsey’s Minneapolis and Seattle offices will each select a first-year law student to receive the Dorsey Diversity Fellowship and work as a 2015 summer associate. Recipients will receive $7,500 toward law school tuition and expenses for the 2015-2016 school year. Recipients who return to Dorsey for the summer following their second year of law school will receive an additional $7,500 for the 2016-2017 school year, and an additional $5,000 if they join the firm as an associate.

All law students of diverse backgrounds who attend an ABA-accredited school are eligible to apply, subject to the class year requirement as noted above. Successful applicants will have a demonstrated record of academic achievement and a commitment to promoting diversity in the legal community.

Award: $7,500 toward tuition for the 2015-2016 school year and additional payments if continue with Dorsey.
