ArentFox Schiff Accepting 2023 Diversity Scholarship Applications

ArentFox Schiff LLP is once again accepting applications from second-year law students for its annual $20,000 Diversity Scholarship. Applications from second-year law students will be reviewed on a rolling basis and interviews will be scheduled throughout the summer. It is anticipated that offers will be made by early Fall 2022.

Five total scholarships, along with salaried positions in our Summer Program, will be awarded to one second-year law student for ArentFox Schiff’s Boston, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington, DC offices. The scholarship was created to serve members of a diverse population that historically has been underrepresented in the legal profession. To submit questions or an application, please contact a member of our recruiting team found below.

Recipients must demonstrate a commitment to practicing law at the highest level and will be expected to participate in the 2023 Summer Program.

"Creating a more equitable and inclusive legal industry is a top priority for ArentFox Schiff and it starts in law school," said Firmwide Co-Managing Partner Cristina A. Carvalho. "Our scholarship program is part of building that pipeline for diverse attorneys."

Firmwide Co-Managing Partner Joseph J. Krasovec added, "ArentFox Schiff will be innovative in our efforts to recruit diverse talent. There is no question that different perspectives produce more creative problem solving which in turn delivers better service for our clients."

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 ArentFox Schiff as an associate after graduation.

The ArentFox Schiff Diversity Scholarship Program started in 2006 and is part of the firm’s commitment to attracting top lawyers from diverse backgrounds.

ArentFox Schiff has awarded dozens of scholarships across the country to winning students competing against thousands of compelling applicants.
