Intellectual property law firm Merchant and Gould, P.C. is offering a scholarship to University of Tennessee College of Law students seeking a career in intellectual property law and coming from diverse backgrounds.
Andrew L. Jagenow, a Merchant and Gould partner and chair of the firm’s diversity committee, said the firm hopes the gift will help the college recruit and support students who are typically underrepresented in intellectual property law.
“Through the scholarships, we are pleased to give resources to students and, by extension, help make our legal community more diverse, inclusive, and innovative,” Jagenow said.
The funds will be used to offer a cash gift of $5,000 merit aid to a deserving student. It may also be split between students.
While Merchant and Gould is providing the scholarship funds, selections will be made a College of Law review committee.
