Applications for the 2020-2021 DAPP National Scholars Program are now open.
You read that right! Our scholars program is now NATIONAL.
Applicants should be full-time, first-year law students from racial or ethnic groups, or any population, historically underrepresented in the legal profession, at any accredited university in the United States.
The 2020 fall semester of the National Scholars Program will consist of 7 mandatory Saturday sessions, and optional DAPP national office hours with law professors across the country who will answer questions about substantive legal concepts. Students will also have access to exclusive career sessions with practicing attorneys and professional development sessions. DAPP Scholars will receive mentors, interview suits and assistance securing paid internship positions for their 1L summer (subject to market availability).
The first semester program is expected to run from September 18, 2020 through the end of November. The final schedule will be determined once the 2020-2021 National Scholars class is finalized.
