Diversity Scholarship

Stradley Diversity Scholarship

In 2017, Stradley launched the Stradley Ronon Diversity Scholarship, a program that identifies, supports, and trains exceptionally qualified diverse law students who demonstrate the characteristics of future leaders in the legal profession. Designed for rising second-year law students, the Scholarship provides recipients with financial support, ongoing mentoring, and hands-on experience working in both a law firm and corporate law department of one of Stradley’s clients. During the summer of 2017, this program provided two recipients from area law schools with a $5,000 scholarship and a paid nine-week position. The students’ summer was split between Stradley and the legal department of firm clients InterDigital and Campbell’s Soup, the in-house partners for the inaugural year.

While Stradley partnered with the Barristers’ (Black Law Students) Association in 2017, Stradley Ronon will in upcoming years partner with other diversity law student organizations, such as OutLaw (the LGBT Law Students Association) and the National Asian Pacific American Law Student Association on a rotating basis. In 2018, Stradley is partnering with the Hispanic Bar Association of Pennsylvania. The 2018 Diversity Scholarship Program recipient - Villanova law student, Rebecca Cabrera – will split her summer between Stradley Ronon and the legal department of firm client AmerisourceBergen Corporation.
