The WiseGeek Diversity in Law No-Essay Scholarship is a $500 scholarship open to minority students who are pursuing a career in law.
About the Scholarship
Lawyers play a vital role in protecting the freedoms and rights of all Americans, regardless of race.
Unfortunately the legal professional remains one of the least diverse professions in the US according the the American Bar Association. Minority lawyers make up less than 17% of the field and only 9% of law partners. With rising racial inequality, diversity in the legal community has never been more important.
The WiseGeek Diversity in Law Scholarship is meant to support and encourage diversity in the legal profession. This $500 award will help current or aspiring law school students of a racial minority pay their tuition or student loans.
Current or aspiring law school students of a racial minority
Must be a U.S. Citizen or permanent legal resident
