The purpose of the Diversity Scholarship Program is to provide college tuition assistance for students of African-American, Asian, Latino and Native-American origins from low-income families in the metro area interested in a career in law. Each scholarship is in the amount of $2,500 per academic year and can be used for tuition, fees, and books. In addition, Fraser Stryker Scholars have the opportunity to learn about the practice of law through a summer internship at the firm.

Formed in 1898, Fraser Stryker has grown to become a nationally recognized law firm of 50 lawyers who represent local, national and multinational clients in complex business transactions and litigation matters. Fraser Stryker attorneys participate actively in a wide array of community organizations.
