Access Restricted to Northwestern Law Community
The scholarship award will be based on academic performance, demonstrated leadership and interpersonal skills, extra-curricular activities, and interest in SEC employment. Interest in SEC employment may be evidenced in many ways, including enrollment in securities regulation classes, participation in the SEC summer honors program, employment as an intern at the SEC, or scholarly research in the securities regulation area.
Initial screening of scholarship applicants will be conducted by a committee of Northwestern Law School faculty members chaired by Professor David S. Ruder, a former chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Final selection of the award recipient or recipients will be made by ASECA.
Students applying for the scholarship should submit a letter of transmittal, a personal statement, and a resume to Professor Ruder at firstname.lastname@example.org, with a copy to email@example.com. The personal statement should set forth the applicant’s reasons for being interested in employment at the SEC, and discuss each of the criteria contained in the second paragraph of this communication.
The application for the ASECA Scholarship should be sent by email to Professor Ruder by November 12, 2012. Interviews of the scholarship finalists will be held during the weeks of November 12 and 19, 2012.
