Dickinson Wright Women's Network Establishes Scholarship

Detroit, Mich., April 3, 2007 – Dickinson Wright PLLC is pleased to announce that its Women's Network has established the Dickinson Wright Women's Network Scholarship. An amount of $2,500 will be awarded annually for the next five years to an outstanding woman law student attending one of Michigan's five accredited law schools (University of Michigan Law School, Thomas M. Cooley Law School, Michigan State University College of Law, Wayne State University Law School, and University of Detroit Mercy School of Law). "The members of the Dickinson Wright Women's Network are extremely proud to provide a tangible contribution to the education and future of the high-potential women who will be the recipients of our scholarship over the next five years," said Lee Khachaturian Dickinson Wright Member and Chair of the Dickinson Wright Women's Network. "The Network was created more than seven years ago to recognize the importance of diversity in the legal profession, provide networking opportunities between the Firm's women clients and its women attorneys, and provide internal mentoring for Dickinson Wright's women attorneys," she said. "We are delighted to add the establishment of the Dickinson Wright Women's Network Scholarship to our list of achievements, and are excited about the impact we expect it will have on exceptional women law students and the future of our profession." The scholarships will be awarded through the Women Lawyers Association of Michigan Foundation based on a selection process conducted by the Foundation Board, using criteria set by Dickinson Wright Women's Network. Beginning in 2008, Dickinson Wright will join Ford Motor Company, General Motors Corporation and the Women Lawyers Association of Michigan Foundation in underwriting the scholarships, which this year will provide $50,000 in awards to 20 outstanding women law students.
