In keeping with our commitment to diversity and inclusion, we established the Vedder Price 1L Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship in 2005.
This Scholarship provides a $10,000 monetary award (less any applicable withholdings and taxes) 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.
The scholarship recipients work within all of Vedder Price’s practice areas: Global Transportation Finance, Finance & Transactions, Corporate, Labor & Employment and Litigation. This is an exciting opportunity to gain first-hand experience working in multiple practices as you look ahead to your 2L year.
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.
We are pleased to announce the recipients of our 2023 1L Diversity & Inclusion Scholarships, Anirudh Koka and Gregory Miller.
