Sarasota County Bar Association Diversity Scholarship

The Sarasota County Bar Association Diversity Scholarship Fund is intended to provide an opportunity for first through third year law students of under-represented minority backgrounds (e.g. race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, physical disability, or socioeconomic background) who have an interest in practicing law in Sarasota County upon graduation, to obtain summer placement in private law firms and governmental agencies in Sarasota County, Florida, so that they and potential employers in the Sarasota County legal community may establish a connection. At the conclusion of their summer employment in a law firm or governmental agency, the law school the student attends will receive scholarship funds of no less than $2,000.00 per student to be used by the student to continue his or her education.

To apply, students must complete an application and return it to the Community Foundation of Sarasota, FL by January 14, 2011.  To obtain a copy of the application, please email the CDO.
