Vedder Price

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

Our 2L Diversity & Inclusion scholarship provides a monetary award of $50,000 (less any applicable withholdings and taxes) and a position in our Summer Associate Program. Each selected scholar will receive $25,000 (less any applicable withholdings and taxes) upon joining the firm as a 2L summer associate at the start of the upcoming Summer Associate Program, and the additional $25,000 (less any applicable withholdings and taxes) will be paid after joining the firm as a full-time associate.

Scholars will join the upcoming Summer Associate Program, working within a designated practice area.

To be eligible, you must be a rising second-year law student whose background or experience would contribute to the diversity of Vedder Price and the legal profession. While students from all law schools are welcome to apply, we ask that applicants have a geographic tie to the office to which they are applying.

Information regarding the 2025 2L Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship program will be available in Spring 2024.
