The international law firm Bryan Cave LLP today announced the recipients of its diversity scholarship program as part of its ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion.
This new program awards diversity scholarships to up to four second-year law students. Each scholarship recipient will receive $10,000 to help defray the cost of law school tuition and related expenses during the student’s final year of law school. Half of the scholarship will be paid after successful completion of Bryan Cave’s Summer Associate Program. The other half will be paid prior to the second semester of the recipient’s third year of law school, providing they have received and accepted an offer to join the firm as an associate after completing their legal education.
The students who have been awarded the diversity scholarships and will be joining the firm as summer associates in 2018 are:
Kevin Arocha – Arocha is a second-year law student at Duke University School of Law and received his B.A. in political science in 2015 from the University of Florida. After his first year of law school he worked as a judicial intern for the Hon. Robert T. Numbers II, United States District Court Eastern District of North Carolina. Arocha will work in the Atlanta office of Bryan Cave.
