The Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA) is pleased to announce the launch of the Lloyd M. Johnson, Jr. (LMJ) Scholarship Program, which is open to college seniors who have been accepted into law school for the fall of 2005 and will be J.D. candidates in 2008.  Named after the founder of MCCA, the LMJ Scholarship Program will award ten or more newly accepted law students from disadvantaged backgrounds with scholarships to help defray their education expenses.  The winners will each receive $10,000 a year for three years.  Other exciting components of the LMJ Scholarship Program include providing prominent members of the legal community as mentors, and MCCA's support in locating a paid summer internship at a leading corporate law department upon completion of the first year of law school.  In addition to the winning scholars, three runners-up will receive a one-time award of $10,000 to assist with their first-year expenses. 

The deadline for applications is June 1, 2005.  MCCA has retained the services of the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) to assist with the promotion and administration of the program.  UNCF will score the completed applications, and provide a list of the top candidates to MCAA for final review with the LMJ Scholarship Selection Committee to select the winners.  Once the scholarships are awarded, the program requires each recipient to maintain a GPA of 3.0 or its equivalent each year.  UNCF will ensure that the LMJ Scholars remain eligible for the program by confirming that they meet yearly requirements of the scholarships to receive the next year's award.  Scholarship information and applications can be obtained from www.mcca.com or www.uncf.org.  Students can either download a paper application or if they wish to submit an online application they may do so via the UNCF web site (www.uncf.org).

Yup. I always have really bad luck with outside scholarships, for some reason. At least it didn't extend to bad luck with school money ...! Maybe there was massive publicity for it and tons of people applied for those 20 spots. I figure if they keep narrowing down the field (minority scholarships for native california latinas attending stanford law this fall, maybe?  ;D)  I might have some luck.

Wow MC, you got rejected from the ABA scholarship too?
I got that friendly "thanks-but-no-thanks" postcard earlier this month. I was disappointed because I really, really need money. I just assumed someone with better grades/LSAT and/or going to STANFORD would be getting the $$. I guess the competition is crazy for that scholarship.
Did you apply for the Bay Area bar scholarship too? I did, keeping my fingers crossed but not holding my breath.

When did you find out you were rejected? I assume I was rejected but I haven't heard anything yet! :( I'm tired of being in limbo.

I've only heard back from one scholarship that I didn't get. I certainly wasn't activist enough for it, but I thought I'd try.

there is an activist scholarship?  what is it?

It's called the Davis Putter Foundation scholarship. http://www.davisputter.org/granteescurr.html

$50,000 per year for up to 6 years for any graduate degree.

- GPA must be higher than 3.5
- Must be nominated by your school (each school can nominate two per year I think)
- Must have crazy ECs and demonstrated superior leadership skills
- Need based

http://www.jackkentcookefoundation.org/jkcf_web/home.aspx?Page=Main

This is the one every admitted law school should try to go after. You will probably need to have a strong rep at your school and in your school's community, and several influential advocates to be nominated by your school, but this should be a piece of cake for many of you.


if anyone is thinking of applying for Jack Kent Cooke, applicants that tend to be most competitive are doing a joint degree (read the profiles).  Also please look at the eligibility requirements, if you have already started any kind of graduate program you are crap out of luck.  Good luck to those who apply!

Although this isn't scholarship information per se, I do have a couple suggestions for those of us looking for $ scholarship money.

1. Check with your local Bar association (i.e. your state or county Bar). I've found a few good ones and I know there are probably quite a few out there for every part of the country.

2. Sometimes state appeals and supreme courts, as well as district courts will have memorial scholarships. If you find the website associated with whatever court and do a search, there may be a couple. I found a couple that

3. Sometimes your parents' companies might offer scholarships to children of employees.

4. There's no need to buy those giant Peterson's or Kaplan guides from Amazon or B&N when you can just take them out from the library.

5. The county prosecutor's office often has scholarships too.

6. Definitely, definitely check out individual firms' sites, regardless of whether you're interested in that firm or even in business law. There's a good number of firms with a vested interest in diversity that have scholarships specifically geared to minority law students.

Hope I've helped.

Do you feel that Affirmative Action has outlived its usefulness with regard to the African American community?

Sidley Prelaw Scholars Program

A lack of resources to attend costly LSAT preparation classes and to fund expensive admissions applications is a significant factor in hindering the application to law school by diverse students. The Sidley Prelaw Scholars Initiative is designed to help address this threshold issue by meeting the specific needs of racially-diverse students seeking to attend law school. Sidley Prelaw Scholars, chosen from college juniors and seniors who demonstrate academic promise and financial need, will receive a $2,500 stipend to cover both tuition in a commercial LSAT preparation course, as well as application fees for as many as seven accredited law schools. Over twenty colleges and universities are slated to participate in the program nation-wide.

“Sidley has a significant commitment to achieving greater ethnic and racial diversity within the legal profession and the firm. We wanted to develop a program that would widen the pipeline by helping to eliminate barriers at an earlier stage in a student’s career,” said Thomas A. Cole, chairman of the firm’s Executive Committee. “Our diversity committee and staff are to be congratulated for developing this creative approach.”

Other critical components of the program include:

“From my personal experience as a graduate of a historically black university, I know that there is a need for more financial assistance for students from historically black colleges and universities (“HBCUs”) who are hopeful of obtaining professional degrees. We believe that the Sidley Prelaw Scholars Initiative will create opportunities for graduates at HBCUs and for financially needy students from other institutions,” said Stanley Stallworth. Stallworth is the firm-wide Co-chair of the firm’s Committee on Racial and Ethnic Diversity, which is responsible for implementing the firm’s policies and initiatives relating to diversity and inclusion.

Drawing upon her background as an admissions professional at the University of Chicago Law School, firmwide Diversity Manager Kathryn R. Stell will be overseeing the Sidley Prelaw Scholars Initiative. “Working with minority undergraduates made me acutely aware of the financial barriers preventing minority students from becoming viable law school candidates. The Sidley Scholars Initiative helps meet those needs of minority pre-law candidates.”


Eligibility
To be considered as a Sidley Prelaw Scholar, one must:

For the 2006 program, be enrolled at one of the following colleges:
Alabama A&M University
Columbia University
Florida A&M University

The above scholarship is still going on, but in it's second year, some of the eligibility requirements have changed.  There are now two applicant groups, one of which allows students who are not from the afforementioned schools to apply.  I highly recommend it if you're applying for next cycle.

I just got the following via email:

Hi,

I wanted to pass along information about the Latham Diversity Scholars Program in case you would like to circulate it to your network. Thanks.

Latham & Watkins is once again pleased to announce the acceptance of applications for the firm's annual Latham & Watkins Diversity Scholars Program, which awards four second-year law students a $10,000 non-renewable scholarship each for use during their third year of law school. Previous recipients of the scholarships have told us that this scholarship not only defrays the cost of a law school education, but also signals the importance of diversity to the firm and is a strong indicator of Latham's open-minded and forward thinking culture.

Started in 2005, the Diversity Scholars Program is designed to increase the number of diverse attorneys who want to pursue careers in global law firms. The Program is an integral part of initiatives at Latham that are designed to support and sustain greater diversity in the profession. The success of the program reaffirms our commitment to a range of diversity activities that enhance the firm's efforts to recruit and hire diverse summer clerks and attorneys, complementing ongoing initiatives such as Latham's annual Diversity Weekend attended by law students receiving offers from the firm and various outreach efforts by Latham’s Diversity Hiring Sub-Committee.

Factors considered in choosing the Diversity Scholars include academic and leadership achievements, life experiences and challenges, and a desire to practice at a global law firm and contribute to its diversity objectives. Scholar candidates are asked to submit an application form, personal statement, resume and official or unofficial law school transcript by September 15, 2007. Recipients will be announced in the early spring of 2008. The process is open to all second-year law students, and the scholarships are not contingent upon receiving or accepting an offer of employment at Latham.

Application forms and more information on the program can be found on Latham's Web site at www.lw.com/diversity  (http://www.lw.com/diversity) <file://www.lw.com/diversity> .

Syracuse University has 10 Full Rides for African American Men and Women interested in Studying Architecture. Mark Robbins, Dean of Syracuse University's School of Architecture is desperately seeking young men and women of color interested in pursuing a five year professional degree in Architecture. He says he's deeply committed to bringing diversity to his field and has scholarship money set aside to fully cover education costs for 10 students. He says that Hispanic enrollment in the school has increased substantially, but it's been harder to attract Blacks. Syracuse University 's School of Architecture has a great reputation and this seems like a terrific opportunity, so please pass this on to everyone you know.
