The scholarship is open to diverse students who are members of underrepresented or minority groups. The scholarship is open to diverse students at any ABA accredited law school, although preference may be given to students at law schools in states in which Womble Carlyle has an office. The scholarship will be awarded in the amount of $30,000, payable over two years as follows: $15,000 in the student's second year of law school and $15,000 in the student's third year of law school. Womble Carlyle anticipates the scholarship will be taxable to the student recipient. The recipient of a Womble Carlyle Scholarship will be required to work at Womble Carlyle as a summer associate for a minimum of 8 weeks during the summer after the student's second year of law school. If the student splits the summer with another firm, the student will be required to work with Womble Carlyle for at least the first eight weeks of Womble Carlyle's summer associate program. The Firm will determine in which office the student works, but every effort will be made to satisfy the student's office preference. The student's salary during the summer will be the same as Womble Carlyle's other Summer Associates in that office. If, after participation in the Womble Carlyle summer associate program, the student receives an offer of full-time employment to work at Womble Carlyle as an associate attorney, the student will receive an additional $10,000 as a signing bonus. The signing bonus will be payable with the student's first paycheck after the commencement of full-time employment as an associate.
