Diversity Scholarship Fund
Rallying behind the next wave of legal trailblazers.
Launched in 2010, the Frost Brown Todd Diversity Scholarship Fund is one of many unique ways our firm promotes building a pipeline of diverse attorneys in our local legal community. Typically, Frost Brown Todd awards approximately five $2,000 scholarships each year to deserving students, meant to support them in their education or exploration of the law. Scholarship recipients are invited to a special awards reception hosted by the firm, and their accomplishments are featured in our quarterly D&I Reports.
Submission Criteria & Process
The goal of these scholarships is to provide financial assistance to worthy students and to promote, in a tangible way, the Frost Brown Todd Diversity Vision Statement. Scholarships are open to all underrepresented students, including, but not limited to, African American, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, LGBTQ+ and multiracial students. All female students, regardless of race or ethnicity, are also eligible to apply. Any other students who come from backgrounds that would add to the cause of diversity, regardless of race or gender, are eligible to apply.
To qualify for this scholarship, a candidate must be a law student at an ABA-accredited law school or an undergraduate student who intends to pursue law school after graduation.
Scholarships will be awarded to applicants who best meet the following criteria:
- Demonstrated academic excellence
- Service to the profession
- Service to the community
- Commitment to diversity
Scholarship applications are typically sent to schools within Frost Brown Todd’s footprint in the Spring Semester. Any students, inside or outside of Frost Brown Todd’s footprint, who wish to apply should contact Diversity Scholarship Committee Chair Justin Fowles.
