The 2016 Baker Donelson Diversity Scholarship Application Is Now Available!

Application deadline is June 19, 2015.

Baker Donelson is committed to fostering an inclusive environment where the individual differences among us are understood, respected, appreciated, and recognized as sources of strength of the Firm. These qualities enrich the environment in which we work. With this in mind, Baker Donelson will again award three scholarships to diverse law students who will complete their first year of law school by June 2015. Recipients will be awarded a six-week, salaried 2L Summer Associate position for the summer of 2016 in one of our Firm’s offices.  Additionally, each recipient will be awarded $10,000 which will be paid prior to the student’s third year of law school to help defray the cost of law school tuition and related expenses.
