2014 marks the eleventh year for the Kegler Brown Diversity Scholarship, which is awarded annually to a first-year law student based on academic performance, accomplishments, activities, and potential contributions to the legal community. This is also the third year that the firm will award two scholarships. Each $5,000 Kegler, Brown, Hill + Ritter Diversity Scholarship includes a paid summer clerkship position with the firm’s first-year summer associate class.

“The scholarship program helps us to attract and retain excellent law students from diverse backgrounds and it assists students financially with their legal education,” said the firm’s managing director, Mike Zatezalo. “We are pleased to offer this opportunity as part of Kegler Brown’s ongoing commitment to diversity.”
