SIDLEY AUSTIN LLP
To further promote diversity within the legal profession and within the firm, Sidley Austin offers a Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship Initiative for second year law students.

Applicants should be of a diverse background, be a second year law student (preference to students at schools where Sidley conducts fall on-campus interviews), have demonstrated academic achievement and leadership qualities, and have a demonstrated ability to contribute meaningfully to the diversity of law school and/or the legal profession. Visit Sidley’s website for more information.
KIRKLAND & ELLIS LLP
As a part of their ongoing commitment to diversity, Kirkland & Ellis LLP sponsors the Kirkland & Ellis Diversity Fellowship Program. Diversity Fellows are selected after an application profess from among second year law students holding offers to join their Summer Associate Program. Fellows are awarded a $25,000 stipend.
Please note that to be considered for the Kirkland & Ellis Diversity Fellowship Program, students must already hold an offer to join Kirkland's Summer Associate Program and must submit a personal statement about the contributions you would make to Kirkland's diversity mission as a whole. Visit Kirkland’s website for more information.
