Crowe & Dunlevy law firm has selected University of Tulsa College of Law first-year student Shinong Wang as the second recipient of the law firm’s $2,000 minority scholarship for the 2013 school year. The Minority Scholar Program provides financial assistance for a minority student who qualifies based on academic achievement, financial need and commitment to the law.
“The Minority Scholar Program is a great reward to our minority students who excel academically at TU College of Law,” said Janet Levit, dean and Dean John Rogers Endowed Chair of TU Law. “Shinong is an outstanding student, and we thank Crowe & Dunlevy for their support.”
Wang is currently pursuing a Juris Doctor from TU Law and a master of business administration from the University of Tulsa Collins College of Business. His professional experience includes serving as a sales and brand analyst with Core BTS and as an account executive for The Daily Cardinal Media Corporation. He received a bachelor of business administration from University of Wisconsin-Madison.
“We are proud to support diversity in the legal profession, and we hope to encourage more students like Shinong to pursue a career in the legal field,” said Kevin Gordon, president of Crowe & Dunlevy. “We value diversity in our firm, and we hope to encourage it through the Minority Scholar Program at TU Law.”
The Minority Scholar Program scholarships may be renewed for a recipient in each of the two remaining years of law school, based on satisfactory progress and performance. The firm plans to award one scholarship each year, resulting in three recipients simultaneously receiving assistance from the program. The first recipient at TU Law was DeVon Douglass, who is currently in the second year of her scholarship.
Crowe & Dunlevy has made the commitment to provide funds for the program for the next four years at TU Law. The firm offers similar scholarship opportunities at other law schools.
