USLAW NETWORK Foundation announces inaugural diversity scholarship recipients

POSTED JUNE 20, 2022

The USLAW NETWORK Foundation announces the inaugural recipients of the USLAW NETWORK Foundation Law School Diversity Scholarship program. Scholarships will be awarded to 10 outstanding law school students from ABA-accredited law schools across the country. Each scholarship recipient will receive $5,000 towards the costs of their law school education as well as an invitation to the Fall 2022 USLAW NETWORK Client Conference scheduled for September 15 – 17 in Austin.

This scholarship program was launched in 2022 and is part of the NETWORK’s commitment to helping eligible, diverse law students who are in need of financial assistance achieve their academic and professional dreams. Each inaugural recipient was selected based on academic achievements and demonstrated commitment to issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, or social justice in their communities or within their academic career.

“We are extremely proud to recognize the 10 standout students who are the recipients of our inaugural USLAW NETWORK Foundation Law School Diversity Scholarships,” said Noble F. Allen (pictured) from Hinckley Allen in Connecticut and Chair of the USLAW Diversity Council. “We had a difficult task selecting this group from an outstanding slate of candidates. The selection of these students reflects our commitment to USLAW’s diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, which we hope will continue to provide opportunities for qualified diverse law students in the future. We are excited to help provide some financial support to these law school students as they navigate and further their legal education. It is our hope that this pipeline initiative, along with our other DEI initiatives, will create additional and expanded opportunities to enable these outstanding students to make professional connections with our USLAW member firms.”
