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.

Thank you to all who applied to our 2022 1L Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship Program.  We were pleased to announce this year’s Scholarship recipients, Julia Muhsen and Nanxi You, and welcome Julia and Nanxi as they join the firm’s 2022 Summer Associate Program.  Information regarding the 2023 1L Diversity Scholarship program will be available in Fall 2022.

“My decision to return to Vedder Price was an easy decision to make. During my first summer at the firm, I made great connections with the shareholders, the associates, and my fellow summer associates. My assignments were substantive and I learned so much about the practice of law over the 10-week period. I wanted to join a firm that valued diversity and developed associates with an eye towards firm leadership. Vedder Price checked all those boxes for me!”
