TRACE INTERNATIONAL LAUNCHES ANTI-CORRUPTION SCHOLARSHIP

IN US FOR LLMs

TRACE, the leading global anti-bribery business association, has launched its TRACE Scholar program, funding two full scholarships for LLM (Master of Laws) students or professionals committed to enhancing transparency in business and government. The scholarships will be awarded to applicants from developing countries who have demonstrated a commitment to reducing corruption. The selected 2014 TRACE Scholars will have a choice of attending either University of Washington School of Law or the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law.

“The TRACE Scholars initiative is another element in our broader campaign to encourage and expand the international community of experts committed to the goal of greater commercial transparency. We believe this will help to facilitate a lively exchange of global best practices,” said Alexandra Wrage, president of TRACE. “These emerging leaders will take what they learn back to their countries and will work toward embedding transparent business practices in their communities with the confidence that they have the support of a larger, international network of experts.”

The TRACE Scholars program includes full tuition, lodging, and travel for two international LLM students. Each student will spend an academic year at his or her chosen university, taking classes focused on business ethics, rule of law, governance and economic development. Following their academic year, each will participate in the paid summer internship program at TRACE’s headquarters in Annapolis, Maryland.

The application deadline is April 20. Recipients will be notified on or before June 15.
