Minority Scholarship Program.
By Doug Sherwin

Foley continues to demonstrate its commitment to diversity in the legal community through this year's minority scholarship program. The program, now in its eighth year, has awarded nearly $400,000 in scholarships to first-year minority law students in an effort to create a more diverse legal community. This year, nine ethnically diverse first-year law students each received a $5,000 scholarship toward their legal education.

"A strong and effective diversity program is one of the highest priorities of our firm, and the minority scholarship program exemplifies our tangible commitment to the advancement of minority law students and to achieving a more diverse legal community," said Maureen A. McGinnity, the firm's chief diversity partner. Foley's minority scholarship program committee selects each scholarship recipient. The committee considers significant involvement in community activities; significant involvement in minority student organizations; outstanding work or personal achievements; and academic achievement.
