TULSA, Okla. – Minority students at the University of Tulsa College of Law will now have additional scholarship opportunities thanks to Oklahoma-based law firm Crowe & Dunlevy. The Minority Scholar Program at TU Law will provide $2,000 per semester for a minority student who qualifies based on academic achievement, financial need and commitment to the field of law. The first recipient will be announced in spring 2012.
“Our firm has a long-standing commitment to enhancing the diversity of the legal profession,” said Mike McBride, a director with Crowe & Dunlevy in its Tulsa offices and co-chair of the firm’s diversity committee. “We are proud to be able to support outstanding students in their pursuit of a successful career in the legal field.”
The scholarships may be renewed for a recipient in each of the two remaining years of law school, based on satisfactory progress. Crowe & Dunlevy plans to award one scholarship each year, resulting in three recipients simultaneously receiving assistance from the program.
“I am so grateful for Crowe & Dunlevy’s support,” said Janet Levit, Dean and Dean John Rogers Endowed Chair for the TU College of Law. “Scholarship funding is crucial to our mission here at TU, and it is through the assistance of friends and supporters such as Crowe & Dunlevy that these programs benefiting deserving students are possible.”
Crowe & Dunlevy has made the commitment to provide funds for the program for the next five years at TU Law. The firm offers similar scholarship opportunities at other law schools.
