Diversity Scholarship Fund
The Frost Brown Todd Diversity Scholarship Fund is one of many unique ways the firm promotes building a pipeline of diverse attorneys in our local legal community. It aims to support diverse students in their education or exploration of law.
The fund consists of approximately $8,000 and is replenished at the start of each fiscal year. The firm encourages bright and diverse law students, deserving of financial assistance with their education, to apply. Nominations from firm attorneys and staff are also welcome.
The FBT Diversity Scholarship Subcommittee administers the fund on a rolling basis throughout the year. Nominations and applications must include:
(1) a written statement from the student describing the reason(s) why he or she deserves a scholarship;
(2) a specific dollar request for a specific need related to education; and
(3) a brief written statement by the nominator describing how he or she knows the student and why the students should be granted a scholarship.
The application should be sent to Kim Amrine, Director of Diversity and Inclusion, via email at email@example.com. After submission, the request will be forwarded to the subcommittee, who will review whether the student shall receive a full or partial scholarship, if any.
Typical requests range between $300 and $1,000. The subcommittee will consider requests for more than $1,000 if the written statement reflects a substantial and compelling need.
For questions about the fund, please contact Kim Amrine or committee member, Justin Fowles (firstname.lastname@example.org).
