Dear First Year Law School Student :
Diversity and inclusion are core values at Baker & Hostetler LLP. The attorneys and staff at BakerHostetler
have made a long-term commitment to diversity and inclusion within our workforce and to recruiting,
retaining and promoting diverse attorneys and staff at all levels. We believe that identifying candidates early
in their careers is important and therefore we invite you to apply for our Paul D. White Scholarship Program.
The BakerHostetler Paul D. White Scholarship is available to men and women minority law students--Black or
African American, Hispanic or Latino, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, Asian or American Indian/Alaskan
Native. The scholarship award includes a paid summer associate clerkship of an equivalent annual rate of
$130,000 and a $7,500 cash award. The summer associate clerkship will commence after the completion of
the recipient's first year of law school and the cash award will be paid at the end of the clerkship. In
appropriate cases, a summer associate clerkship may also be offered again at the end of the student's second
year of law school.
The following criteria may be utilized by BakerHostetler to review and select scholarship candidates: law
school performance; demonstrated leadership abilities (as evidenced by community and collegiate
involvement); collegiate academic record; extracurricular activities; work experience; and a written personal
statement. The top scholarship candidates will be interviewed by members of the Cleveland Office Hiring
If you are interested in applying for the Paul D. White Scholarship in BakerHostetler's Cleveland Office, please
