George V. Powell Diversity Scholarship

Lane Powell has more than 135 years of commitment to our communities. This commitment is reflected in Lane Powell’s hiring and promotion of women and individuals from diverse backgrounds. As part of this commitment to diversity, our Firm has created the George V. Powell Diversity Scholarship. The George V. Powell Scholar will be a 2012 summer associate in the Firm’s Seattle or Portland office and receive a $7,500 scholarship toward tuition and expenses during the student’s third year of law school.
Academic Requirements and Selection Criteria

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.
