Bondi endows diversity and inclusion scholarship at UF Law
Florida Bar member Brad Bondi committed $100,000 to the University of Florida Levin College of Law to create and permanently endow a Bradley J. Bondi Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship Fund at the law school.
Bondi has been working with school leaders for the past year to support initiatives focused on diversity and inclusion.
“Brad’s generous gift will allow us to continue to offer competitive scholarships for the most talented new students and further our goals for increasing the diversity of our incoming class,” said UF Law Dean Laura Rosenbury.
Recipients of the scholarship will be new students entering UF Law who demonstrate a commitment to advancing the causes of diversity and inclusion through their past or ongoing activities. All students are eligible for the scholarships without regard to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation and identity, national origin, age, military or veteran status, disability or any other legally protected status, and without discrimination based on socioeconomic, marital, parental or caregiving status, according to the university
“Diversity and inclusion are principles that have been important to me and my family in everything we do,” said Bondi, a partner with Cahill Gordon & Reindel in Washington and New York City “I am proud to establish this scholarship which furthers my commitment to provide opportunity and encouragement for all. My hope is that this scholarship will inspire individuals from all walks of life to continue their work in creating diverse and inclusive communities. It is through these efforts that we strengthen our institutions and foster a greater future for all of us as we strive toward achieving equality under the law.”
Bondi, a 1998 UF Law graduate, is currently a trustee of the University of Florida Law Center Association and sponsors the law school’s Corporations Book Award.
