Vedder Price

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

This Scholarship provides a $5,000 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. The Scholarship has been traditionally offered in our Chicago office, and we are pleased to announce that we are adding a Scholarship position in our New York office for the Summer of 2018.

To be eligible, you must be a first-year law student who is a student of color, LGBT, a person with a disability or a person whose background or experience would otherwise contribute to the diversity of Vedder Price and the legal profession.

Please see our 2018 Diversity Scholarship Overview to learn more about us and the experiences of previous Diversity Scholarship recipients.

Thank you to all who applied for our 2018 Diversity Scholarship Program. We look forward to awarding the Scholarships in March 2018.

    "My summer at Vedder Price was both intellectually challenging and inspiring. Vedder Price’s Diversity Scholarship program is a unique opportunity to grow professionally as a future lawyer at an early stage of law school. By shadowing talented attorneys in interesting matters, I was able to participate in the same day-to-day activities of seasoned attorneys and gain hands-on experience assisting attorneys with complex transactions for the firm’s clients. Skills aside, Vedder Price fosters an engaging, collaborative, and collegial culture that welcomes diverse backgrounds and perspectives. I was truly welcomed to knock on leadership’s door for questions, advice, or mentorship during my summer with Vedder Price."
