Diversity Law Student Scholarship Fund

Diversity is a core value at DRI. Indeed, diversity, which includes sexual orientation, is fundamental to the success of the organization, and we seek out and embrace the innumerable benefits and contributions that the perspectives, backgrounds, cultures, and life experiences a diverse membership provides.

In order to increase diversity of the legal profession in a constructive and tangible way, DRI has awarded two $10,000 diversity law student scholarships for twelve years.

This program 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 also come from backgrounds that would add to the cause of diversity, regardless of race or gender are also eligible to apply. To qualify for this scholarship, candidates must be full-time students. The goal of these scholarships is to provide financial assistance to two worthy law students from ABA accredited law schools in order to promote, in a tangible way, the DRI Diversity Statement in Principle. Recipients’ of the scholarships are announced at the DRI Diversity for Success Seminar in June.

All DRI Diversity Law Student Scholarship winners have completed their law school studies.
