Farella Braun + Martel LLP 1L Diversity Scholarship

Description

We created the Diversity Scholarship Program to assist Bay Area students in their first year of law school who share our commitment to defray some part of their legal education expenses. Recipients are selected based on academic achievement, employment, and community service, indicating strong potential to be a future leader in taking actions towards making the legal profession more diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate a commitment to working and living in the Bay Area. In 2024, we will award a total of $45,000 in scholarship grants to be divided equally among three first-year law student recipients. Applicants must be current first-year law students in good standing, pursuing a J.D. at one of the eligible law schools in California. A list of no more than three references are required, please note that we would prefer that at least one of your references be a law school professor or instructor. Additionally, you may provide no more than two letters of recommendation, which may also be from people whom you have listed as references. Please visit the scholarship's website for more information.
