The Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA) is committed to building a diverse pipeline of students who will become the leaders of tomorrow. In order to achieve this goal, MCCA understands the importance of building a strong pipeline early in a student’s education and to provide the mentoring necessary to establish solid foundation for their future career.
That is why in 2004, MCCA established the Lloyd M. Johnson, Jr. Scholarship Program (“LMJ Scholarship”). The LMJ Scholarship is a pipeline program that seeks to nurture the academic and professional careers of outstanding law students. The LMJ Scholarship grants scholarships of $10,000 to students for their first year of law school. In addition to the financial support, the scholars are connected with peers, alumni, and mentors, who are available to provide professional support, such as guidance on addressing academic or personal obstacles that arise over the course of their legal career.
Since its inception, the LMJ Scholarship has awarded over $3.5 million in scholarships to over 200 students, of which 40% identify as men and 60% identify as women.
