2007 Farella Braun + Martel Diversity Scholarships

January 31, 2007

Farella Braun + Martel recognizes the value of increasing diversity within the legal profession, and as part of our commitment to diversity, we award Diversity Scholarships to support outstanding Bay Area diverse law students. As we have for the past six years, Farella Braun + Martel will award a total of $25,000 in scholarship grants for the 2007 - 2008 school year, to be divided equally between three to five law student recipients.

Scholarship applicants must be current first-year, full- or part-time (attending first-year classes) law students who are students of color, members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community, disabled, or whose background or experience would otherwise contribute to the diversity of the legal profession. Recipients must currently attend one of the following local law schools: University of California, Berkeley (Boalt Hall); University of California, Davis (King Hall); University of California, Hastings College of the Law; Golden Gate University; Stanford University; Santa Clara University; or the University of San Francisco.

Our scholarship committee is composed of attorneys at the firm, and scholarship recipients will be selected based upon a combination of merit and financial need. With respect to merit, the committee will consider each applicant's academic and extracurricular accomplishments, background, activities, obligations and commitment to community service. need, as interpreted by the committee, will be determined based upon the applicant's and the applicant's family's income; the applicant's sources of financial aid, including loans, grants, fellowships and scholarships, if any; assets, if any; expenses; and expected income during the summer of 2007. Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate a commitment to working and living in the Bay Area.

Applications for our 2007 Diversity Scholarship Program are now available, and must be completed and submitted by March 16, 2007. 

More information on diversity at Farella Braun + Martel can be found on the Diversity page.
