The Sarasota County Bar Association in partnership with the Community Foundation of Sarasota County is accepting applications for its Diversity Scholarship Program to provide scholarships of up to $5,000 to qualified law students of diverse backgrounds. Students are selected from Florida law schools by the SCBA Diversity Committee. Click on the above link to view the brochure.
Eligibility is based on need, merit and qualifying criteria. Candidates interview with area law firms and/or governmental agencies that have agreed to employ the students for 10-week summer internships. Once approved, successful applications are referredto the Community Foundation who awards the scholarship to the student’s law school to further his/her legal education.
The Diversity Committee is available to provide information about housing for students that do not have ties to the community.
