Diversity Scholarship

Ramsey County Bar Foundation and Hennepin County Bar Foundation

2024 Diversity Law Student Scholarship

In the spring of 2024, the Ramsey County Bar Foundation and Hennepin County Bar Foundation will each award up to $6,000 ($12,000 in total) in scholarships to law students who contribute meaningfully to diversity in their community and have volunteer or paid work experience, and/or interest in legal services to low-income Minnesotans.

The applicant must be a current Minnesota law school student and recipients 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 prompts focused on career growth and diversity.

The Diversity Scholarship program's mission is to provide fair and equitable scholarship opportunities to local law students. Any student may apply, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, or disability.

Application is open through February 12, 2024.
