Diversity Scholars Programs

In 2006, we established the Blank Rome Diversity Scholars Program to attract outstanding diverse law students, exemplifying our Firm’s tangible commitment to the attainment and advancement of diverse professionals within the legal community at large.

Blank Rome has two diversity scholarship programs: Our 1L Blank Rome Scholars Program and our 2L Blank Rome Scholars Program.

Diversity scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement, demonstrated leadership, community service, work experience, and commitment to the practice of law. Each scholar is awarded a full 10-week salaried position in the Firm’s Summer Associate Program and a $25,000 scholarship. Scholars receive specialized mentoring, coaching, and training, and are teamed up with a Blank Rome partner and an associate, who serve as mentors for the duration of the Summer Program.

The Firm invites law students to apply to our Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, or Washington, D.C., offices.
