Arent Fox Accepting Diversity Scholarship Applications

WASHINGTON – Arent Fox LLP is once again accepting applications from second-year law students for its annual $20,000 Diversity Scholarship. Applications from second-year law students can be submitted on a rolling basis until the deadline on Wednesday, August 15.

Four total scholarships, along with salaried positions in our Summer Program, will be awarded to one second-year law student for Arent Fox’s Washington, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco offices. Recipients must demonstrate a commitment to practicing law at the highest level and will be expected to participate in the 2019 Summer Program.

“We are once again pleased to make this opportunity available to talented law students who are ready to start a rewarding legal career,” said Chair Mark M. Katz. “It is our hope that students will use the scholarship to ease any financial burden from law school, while making the most of the opportunity to receive first-rate legal training.”

The 2019 Summer Program will last for 10 weeks. The $20,000 scholarship will be paid in two installments: $10,000 during the student’s second-year summer and another $10,000 payable when the student returns to Arent Fox as an associate after graduation.

The Arent Fox Diversity Scholarship Program started in 2006 and is part of the firm’s commitment to attracting top lawyers from diverse backgrounds. Arent Fox has awarded dozens of scholarships across the country to winning students competing against thousands of compelling applicants.

Interviews for scholarship applicants will be held in late August and September.
