Arent Fox Accepting 2021 Diversity Scholarship Applications

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 Monday, February 1.

Five total scholarships, along with salaried positions in our Summer Program, will be awarded to one second-year law student for Arent Fox’s Boston, Washington, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco offices. The scholarship was created to serve members of a diverse population that historically has been underrepresented in the legal profession.

Recipients must demonstrate a commitment to practicing law at the highest level and will be expected to participate in the 2021 Summer Program.

“We are pleased to make this opportunity available to talented law students who are ready to start a rewarding legal career. 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.”

Cristina A. Carvalho, Firmwide Managing Partner

Scholarship Details

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 on a rolling basis.
