The ABA Solo, Small Firm and General Practice Division (GPSolo) Diversity Fellowship Program aims to promote diversity within the Division and the ABA, while providing leadership opportunities within the Division for historically underrepresented groups, including racial and ethnic minorities, women, LGBT individuals, and persons with disabilities.
The application process is currently closed, but typically is open from the beginning of the calendar year to early spring.
Any lawyer or judge, who is a member of the Division, with a diverse background and experiences as defined by ABA Goal III may apply. The Division’s Diversity Board will select four applicants to serve as Fellows for the following bar year. The selection will be based on the individual’s achievement and commitment to the organized bar and to GPSolo’s mission and goals.
Fellows will be required to attend the Division's Fall meeting and Spring meeting with reimbursement of up to $500 for airfare and a $100 per diem for two days for each meeting. Fellows may also show their commitment to the Division by attending the ABA Annual Meeting; however, reimbursement for this meeting is not available.
