ABA Antitrust Law Section seeks scholarship, writing applications from prospective lawyers

The American Bar Association Antitrust Law Section is offering several prizes and other programs for law students interested in pursuing the broad range of fields under competition law.

The offerings, with application guidelines and deadlines, are:

• Robert Pitofsky Law Student Writing Competition, Deadline: Feb. 23 ? This competition encourages and rewards student-written articles in the area of antitrust law, competition policy and consumer protection law.

• Hollis Salzman Memorial Scholarship, Deadline extended: Feb. 29 ? This scholarship is named after one of the nation’s leading competition attorneys who dedicated her career to private enforcement of the antitrust and consumer protection laws on behalf of plaintiffs. It is designed to encourage and assist law students identifying as women who would like to pursue a summer or midyear internship or clerkship in either public or private enforcement of the antitrust or consumer protection laws, and to help open doors for such opportunities.

• Summer 2024 Diversity Stipend, Deadline: March 1 ? Diverse second-year law (2L) students attending an ABA-accredited law school are eligible to apply for a $5,000 stipend upon their acceptance to a summer 2024 internship at a qualified federal agency or a Washington-based nonprofit organization in the areas of antitrust, consumer protection or privacy law. The program is not based on financial need but rather the applicant’s personal and educational background, personal statement and participation in community service activities.
