The program is open to rising (2018-19) second- and third-year African American, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, LGBT and multi-racial students. The goal of these scholarships is to provide financial assistance to two worthy law students from ABA-accredited law schools to promote, in a tangible way, the DRI Diversity Statement of Principle.
