As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity, we are proud to sponsor the Kirkland & Ellis LLP 2L Diversity Fellowship Program. Since 2004, Kirkland has sponsored more than 190 Fellows with grants totaling more than $3.9 million. In 2016, each Diversity Fellowship recipient received a $25,000* stipend. Fellowship applicants should submit a personal statement addressing the individual’s interest in Kirkland and the ways in which the candidate has promoted and will continue to promote diversity in the legal community. Applicants must also apply to and receive an offer to join the summer program at one of the Firm's offices.
*$25,000 less all required income and payroll taxes.
