The Washington Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel ("WACC") is sponsoring a scholarship in 2013 in the amount of $2,500.00 to benefit one law student currently attending and in good standing at a law school in Washington State.
The WACC Diversity Scholarship provides financial assistance to law students who promote diversity in the legal profession in Washington State. The scholarship helps increase diversity in the legal profession; reflects the diverse communities in which we live; and ultimately benefits the legal community in general and the Washington ACC chapter.

Applicants must complete the attached form, resume, and one page essay by
October 21st . A decision will be made by the WACC Scholarship Committee by November 11th . The scholarship award will be paid directly to the law school, to be credited against the student's tuition bill. The law schools will be asked to acknowledge the gift in writing.
