Diversity & Inclusion Overview

Diversity Scholarship Program

We are proud to offer the Buford-Jemison Scholarship Program, a unique opportunity for a first-year law student to split their summer associate experience between Dinsmore and global consumer goods corporation The Procter & Gamble Company. One first-year scholarship recipient will be a salaried summer associate for both P&G and Dinsmore, splitting a 12-week period between both organizations' Cincinnati, Ohio offices.

We are also offering an opportunity for a salaried summer associate position at Dinsmore and will spend up to half of their summer associate experience with Lockheed Martin. The recipient will also receive the scholarship from Dinsmore, a housing stipend, and be assigned a dedicated mentor.

Dinsmore is also offering a new HBCU Diversity Scholarship opportunity for first-year law students who attend any HBCU law school and/or any first-year law student who has obtained an HBCU undergraduate or graduate degree. The scholarship recipient will participate in Dinsmore’s 10-week summer associate program.

The chosen scholarship recipients will receive up to $10,000 and are assigned a mentor to serve as a dedicated resource for professional development. We specifically seek applicants who have a strong record of academic or professional achievement, demonstrated leadership qualities, and a meaningful commitment to diversity. The recipients will be eligible for an opportunity to return for a second summer and as a first year associate with Dinsmore following graduation.

The deadline for 2024 scholarship applications is Monday, February 12, 2024.
