2019 – 2020 GPSolo Diversity Fellowship Program

The 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.

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 2019 Solo & Small Firm Summit (October 17 – 19, 2019, at the Park Hyatt Aviara in Carlsbad, California) and Spring Meeting (April 30 – May 2, 2020, at the La Concha Renaissance Resort in San Juan, Puerto Rico) 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.

Deadline: Friday, April 12, 2019.
