DRI has announced its annual Law School Diversity Scholarship program. 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. The awards are 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
Students who are members of the American Association for Justice (AAJ), Law School or Law Student members of AAJ or students otherwise affiliated with or employed by AAJ are not eligible for DRI Law Student Diversity Scholarships.
The deadline for applications is Friday, April 19, 2013. Applications can be downloaded here.
