White & Case offers a select number of scholarships and fellowships for law students around the world.
Made possible by contributions from White & Case, Standard Chartered Bank and other donors in Singapore and New York in 1997, the Kathryn Aguirre Worth Memorial Scholarship is open to National University of Singapore LL.B. graduates who plan to pursue an LL.M. degree at an accredited law school in the United States. The scholarship was established to honor the memory of an associate in our Singapore office.
The White & Case Orison Marden Fellowship funds summer programs for 15 first-year New York University law students who choose to work in a public interest capacity in Europe and developing nations. The Fellowship was established in 1978 at New York University in honor of Orison Marden, a partner and leader at White & Case who served for many years as Director and Chairman of the Board of The Legal Aid Society and was a champion of pro bono work.
Created in 1995 by our Paris office, the White & Case Annual Business Law Scholarship provides opportunities for economically disadvantaged law students in France to study abroad. A €40,000 grant is divided among three students, enabling them to complete their training through advanced studies around the world. This program is unique among Paris law firms in its criteria and selection process.
In 2011, the Firm supported the creation of the first commercial law library at KIMEP University in Almaty, Kazakhstan and has offered LL.M. scholarships for KIMEP University graduates for the past three years. The library and scholarships are named in honor of Yuriy Maltsev, who founded our Almaty office in 1995 and led it until his untimely death in 2010.
