Diversity Scholarship

Ramsey County Bar Foundation and Hennepin County Bar Foundation

2023 Diversity Law Student Scholarship

In the spring of 2023, the Ramsey County Bar Foundation and Hennepin County Bar Foundation will each award a minimum of $6,000 in various scholarship funds to law students who attend a Minnesota law school and who are a member of a group(s) traditionally under-represented and/or marginalized in the legal profession (including race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability) and who contributes meaningfully to diversity in their community and has volunteer or work experience and/or interest in legal aid services.

The applicant must be a current Minnesota law school and applicants will be chosen based on resume (record of academic and professional achievement, leadership qualities through past work experience, community involvement and student activities) and responses to 2 prompts focused on career growth and diversity.

Application is open March 10–April 3 at 11:45 p.m.
Students that meet the standard criteria can apply here
