Warner introduces $20,000 law scholarship

Warner Norcross + Judd LLP has introduced a new $20,000 Law Scholarship – Embracing Diversity in Our Communities.

 Offered annually, the scholarship will be awarded to a rising second-year law student in good standing from a historically marginalized community. Students are asked to share a written personal statement, short video introduction, undergraduate and law school transcripts and a current resume for consideration. 

Applications are being accepted through June 30, with the winner being notified by July 11. Eligible applicants will be offered a summer associate position in one of Warner’s nine offices throughout Michigan in 2023.

Applicants may identify by race, as LGBTQIA+ or with a disability. Applications will be reviewed by members of the firm’s Diversity, Equity + Inclusion Action Committee and Summer Associate Committee. The $20,000 scholarship will be divided into four payments of $5,000 over four consecutive semesters.

This is the newest in a series of scholarships and programs designed to promote diversity in the legal profession. To date, Warner has contributed more than $250,000 to a number of initiatives, including scholarships for law students, paralegals and legal secretaries, as well as study courses to prepare for law school entrance exams.
