Warner Norcross Announces 2015 Minority Scholarship Opportunity


For the 15th consecutive year, the law firm of Warner Norcross & Judd LLP is sponsoring academic scholarships to assist minority students from Michigan to complete their legal studies.
 
The Warner Norcross Minority Scholarship Program is a competitive scholarship administered and awarded by the Grand Rapids Community Foundation. The program awards $5,000 to a law school student, $2,000 to a paralegal/legal assistant student and $1,000 to a legal secretarial student to help cover the educational costs associated with a law degree or paralegal studies.
 
In addition to its longstanding tuition scholarship program, Warner Norcross also annually awards scholarships to minority students in their junior or senior year of college to pay the costs of a study course for the Law School Admission Test.  Information about the LSAT scholarship is also available on the firm's website.
 
Since it began awarding scholarships, Warner Norcross has awarded more than $155,000 to support programs that encourage minority students to pursue a career in law.  To date, the firm has provided scholarships to more than 70 students.
 
In order to be considered for a scholarship, applicants must:
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher
  • Be a Michigan resident accepted to or currently attending an accredited law school within the United States or a non-Michigan resident attending a Michigan law school (for the Law School Scholarship)
  • Be a Michigan resident enrolled in an accredited college or university in Michigan (for the Paralegal Scholarship)
  • Demonstrate financial need
  • Submit a statement of goals and aspirations related to their legal studies
  • Be a member of an ethnic or racial minority
