Application Deadline: February 15th 2016
For a third year year, the UW School of Law’s Sustainable International Development Law program is pleased to partner with TRACE International, a leading nonprofit business association focused on anti-bribery compliance, to offer a new LL.M. scholarship aimed at developing exceptional young leaders in the field of anti-corruption who are committed to advancing commercial transparency.
The TRACE Scholar Program will fully fund (with tuition, lodging and travel) an international lawyer from a developing country to pursue studies related to strategies and tools for increasing transparency and reducing corruption. The UW Law TRACE Scholar will spend an academic year at the University of Washington followed by a paid summer internship at TRACE headquarters in Annapolis, Maryland. The person selected as a TRACE Scholar must be ready to commence his/her studies in late August 2016 for a period of one year.
The TRACE Scholar will have a demonstrated interest in anti-corruption efforts and will write their LL.M. thesis on a subject related to anticorruption: international instruments, compliance or enforcement. They will enroll in relevant courses focused on business ethics, rule of law, governance and/or economic development. The TRACE Scholar Program will provide emerging leaders and professionals with an interest in anti-corruption and bribery prevention with an intensive course of study followed by a practical and “hands-on” internship.
