Call for Applications: Diversity and Inclusion Scholarships to Virtual 2021 May Tax Meeting

The Tax Section is now accepting applications for the Diversity and Inclusion Scholarships, designed to encourage members of diverse backgrounds or with a recognized commitment to diversity and inclusion to attend and participate in the Virtual 2021 May Tax Meeting, on May 10–14, 2021.

The Section embraces diversity and inclusion in every aspect of its activities, including its meetings. These scholarships defray the cost of meeting attendance, including waiver of the registration fee (and when in person meetings return will also include up to three nights stay at the host hotel, airfare, and attendance at the Plenary Session Luncheon). Applicants must meet eligibility requirements, including Section membership and understanding of the Section’s Diversity and Inclusion Plan.

Scholarship recipients will be required to fulfill several duties during and after the meeting, including attendance at certain panels and events, and subsequent reports to the Section’s Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship Selection Committee.

Full eligibility requirements, selection criteria, and recipient duties can be found along with an example scholarship application.

Applications and questions should be directed to the Section’s counsel, Meg Newman, at taxlserve@americanbar.org.
