2L Diversity Fellowship Program


As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity, we are proud to sponsor the Kirkland & Ellis 2L Diversity Fellowship Program. Since 2004, Kirkland has sponsored nearly 400 Fellows with grants totaling approximately $10 million. In addition to a $50,000 (less all required income and payroll taxes) scholarship, our 2L Diversity Fellowship provides a unique opportunity for students to work alongside some of the top lawyers in the world, gain hands-on experience and mentoring, develop leadership skills, interact with Firm clients and make enduring connections with peers.

To apply for the Fellowship, students should submit a summer associate application. On the application, there is an option to indicate your interest in the Fellowship. An optional personal statement explaining your interests and goals in joining Kirkland may be uploaded to supplement your application. Please reach out to Jason Triplett with any questions.

Applications are now open.
