As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity, we are proud to sponsor the Kirkland & Ellis LLP Diversity Fellowship Program. Since 2004, Kirkland has sponsored more than 140 Diversity Fellows with grants totaling more than $2.5 million. In 2015, each Diversity Fellowship recipient received a $25,000* stipend. Fellowship applicants submit a personal statement that details how their employment by the Firm would enhance the Firm's diversity mission. Applicants must also apply to and receive an offer to join the summer program at one of the Firm's offices. The Firm awarded Diversity Fellowships to 10 law students in 2016.
