The ACC-National Capital Region (formerly WMACCA) Corporate Scholar Program provides students with paid experiential learning opportunities in the legal departments of prestigious local companies and nonprofit organizations.
The Corporate Scholars Program seeks students who have good grades, strong writing skills, previous work experience, and some professional maturity. The Corporate Scholars Program is a “diversity pipeline” program, seeking applications from populations that may otherwise lack access to these opportunities. Diversity for this Program is used in its broadest sense, and is meant to generate a pool of applicants who are reflective of the work force in general and the communities that lawyers serve.
Information on the Program, prior scholars, FAQs, and a link to the application can be found on the ACC-National Capital Region website at: http://www.acc.com/chapters/ncr/student-application-portal.cfm
The application deadline is January 19, 2017.
