Milbank Diversity Scholars receive a $50,000 scholarship and a salaried summer associate position in one of the firm’s domestic offices*. Factors considered in the selection of Milbank Diversity Scholars include academic achievement, demonstrated leadership ability, excellent writing and interpersonal skills, and a sincere interest in our practice. To be named a Milbank Diversity Scholar, candidates must be in good standing at an ABA accredited law school and have successfully completed their first year of a full-time JD program. Students who are members of groups traditionally under-represented at large law firms are encouraged to apply.
Read our FAQs for more information on the Diversity Scholars Program. We will begin accepting applications on June 1, 2013.
* $25,000 is distributed during the student’s third year of law school; payment of the additional $25,000 is contingent upon receipt and acceptance of a Milbank permanent offer, to be paid when the student joins the firm.
