Lane Powell has more than 140 years of commitment to our communities. As part of our commitment to diversity, we have created the George V. Powell Diversity Scholarship. Each year, Lane Powell makes the scholarship available for a Summer Associate in the firm’s Seattle or Portland office, and each George V. Powell Scholar receives a $7,500 scholarship toward tuition and/or expenses during the student’s third year of law school.
We are seeking candidates who will contribute meaningfully to the diversity of the legal community and who have a demonstrated desire to work, live, and eventually practice law in Seattle or Portland. The candidates’ academic achievements and record of leadership abilities, community service, and involvement in community issues will be taken into consideration. Candidates must be second year students in good standing at an ABA accredited law school. Candidates in four-year joint degree programs will be considered after their third year.
To apply to the George V. Powell Diversity Scholarship, please provide the following materials:
The 2021 scholarship process has closed. We anticipate that the 2022 application process will open during summer 2021 and will provide more information closer to that time.
