In 2022, Sidley launched Built to Lead℠, an executive leadership program uniquely designed to help associates become world-class, business-savvy lawyers. This program features MBA-level executive training at top business schools along with professional development and personal career coaching opportunities.

We are proud to expand on the success of this program with the Built to Succeed Leadership, Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship. The Built to Succeed Leadership, Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship will be awarded to a limited number of second-year law students who show exceptional leadership qualities and have demonstrated contributions to equity and inclusion initiatives. Students are recognized for their capacity to lead and serve, as well as their commitment to making a significant impact on inclusion efforts in their schools and communities. We are excited to launch this scholarship as part of our mission to continually attract, retain, and promote to partnership and leadership, outstanding lawyers who share the firm’s commitment to diversity and inclusion and reflect the communities we serve.

The Built to Succeed Leadership, Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship awards $50,000 (less any applicable withholdings and taxes) to selected Sidley 2L summer associates. Scholarship recipients will receive $25,000 upon joining Sidley as a summer associate, and the remaining $25,000 will be paid after joining the firm as a full-time associate. Leadership development opportunities will be available for scholarship recipients during the summer program.
