Godfrey & Kahn is proud to announce its 2010 Fellowship in Law Recipients: Alyssa Ricketts at the University of Wisconsin and Carolina Rodriguez-Alfaro at Marquette University.
The Fellowship in Law program was established as part of the firm's ongoing diversity initiative and is designed to continue to promote diversity within the student body of the law schools. The program provides a full, three-year scholarship to one student at the University of Wisconsin Law School and one student at Marquette University Law School. In addition to tuition, recipients are also offered mentoring from Godfrey & Kahn attorneys, as well as a position as a summer associate at the firm. The selection of fellowship recipients is mutually determined by Godfrey & Kahn and the participating universities.
"I am happy to welcome Alyssa and Carolina into the Godfrey & Kahn family," said Rick Bliss, managing partner. "Both recipients are highly deserving, exceptional students and we look forward to helping them as they embark on their journey in law school."
