Vedder Price

In keeping with our commitment to diversity, we established the Vedder Price 1L Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship in 2005.

This Scholarship provides a $10,000 monetary award for law school-related expenses and a guaranteed summer associate position in our Summer Associate Program after the scholarship recipient’s first year of law school. To receive the scholarship, the recipient must join the upcoming Summer Associate Program and the monetary award will be paid at the start of the program.

To be eligible, you must be a first-year law student who is a person of color, LGBTQ+, a person with a disability or a person whose background or experience would contribute to the diversity of Vedder Price and the legal profession. Applicants must be enrolled in one of the following law schools: Boston University, Columbia, Cornell, Duke, Fordham, George Washington, Georgetown, Harvard, Northwestern, Notre Dame, NYU, Stanford, University of California-Berkeley, University of California-Los Angeles, University of Chicago, University of Illinois, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, University of Minnesota, University of Pennsylvania, University of Southern California, University of Texas-Austin, University of Virginia, Vanderbilt, Washington University in St. Louis or Yale.

Information regarding the 2023 1L Diversity Scholarship program will be available in Fall 2022.
