Warner Calls for Diversity Scholarship Submissions
 
Midland, Michigan, January 9, 2020 – As part of its ongoing commitment to promote diversity within the legal profession, Warner Norcross + Judd LLP is now accepting scholarship applications for two programs: The Law School Admissions Test Preparation Course Scholarship Program and the Diversity Law Scholarship Program.
 
Now in its 13th year, the LSAT Preparation Course Scholarship Program provides scholarships of up to $1,500 each to enable racially and/or ethnically diverse college students to participate in a study course to prepare them to take the LSAT. Studies have shown that students who take a formal LSAT prep course score higher on the test, which determines entrance into law school. Applications are due May 1.
 
To be eligible for an LSAT prep course scholarship, applicants must:
  • Be a Michigan resident or currently attend a Michigan college or university
  • Be a junior or senior during the 2019-2020 academic year
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher
  • Have a demonstrated financial need
  • Take the LSAT prep course by Dec. 31, 2020
 
Scholarships will cover the cost of tuition for an LSAT Preparation Course, consisting of self-paced, live online and in-person classes offered by Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions.
 
The Diversity Law Scholarship Program, which was previously named the Minority Law Scholarship Program, provides students with financial assistance to offset the educational costs of earning a law or paralegal degree. The firm awards $5,000 to a law school student, $2,000 to a paralegal student and $1,000 to a legal secretarial student. Applications are due March 1, and winners will be selected by the Grand Rapids Community Foundation.
 
To be eligible for the Diversity Law scholarship, applicants must be accepted to or attending a Michigan law school, be a Michigan resident attending an accredited law school in the United States or be a Michigan resident majoring in paralegal or legal secretarial studies in an accredited program.
