Call for applications - Zelle LLP Announces Diversity in Law Scholarship - 2018

Posted On:Monday, February 26, 2018

Zelle is pleased to announce the firm's Diversity in Law Scholarship will be offered again in 2018. The keystone of the firm's Diversity Outreach Plan, the Diversity in Law Scholarship was created for law students who either (1) are a member of a population or group whose background and perspectives are historically underrepresented in the private practice of law; or (2) demonstrate a long-standing commitment to diversity that will be furthered by award of the scholarship.

The scholarship awards the selected recipient a total of $30,000 to be applied towards the selected recipientís law school tuition, fees, and text books, with one half of the scholarship paid for the studentís second year of law school and one half of the scholarship paid for the studentís third year of law school subject to the following: To receive the second installment of the scholarship, the recipient must maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA (or its equivalent) through the studentís second year of law school. Depending upon the firmís current needs, the Scholarship recipient may be offered, but is under no obligation to accept, a paid summer clerkship at one of the firmís offices for the summer following the studentís first year of law school. The specific location of the potential clerkship will be decided by the firm in consultation with the student and will be based upon both the studentís interest and the firmís need. Finally, in order to help ensure the recipientís successful entry into the legal profession, the firm will assign an attorney to mentor the recipient for the studentís remaining law school career.

The application deadline for submission is April 16, 2018. For complete information about the firm's Diversity in Law Scholarship, including contact and submission information and to access the formal application, please click here.
