Adler, Pollock and Sheehan recently presented its inaugural $10,000 Diversity Scholarship to Coventry native Malinda Bridges, who will intern at the Providence-based law firm this summer.

Bridges, who currently attends the University of Virginia Law School, graduated from Rhode Island College summa cum laude with a 4.0 grade point average last spring. She was one of more than 20 students who applied for the scholarship and is described as being the type of daughter, college alumnus and student intern that “everyone would love to have.”

Robert Brooks, managing partner of the law firm, said Bridges stood out from the other applicants in large part because of her poise and her commitment to giving back to the community.

While at RIC, she received several awards for participation and leadership, and co-founded Live, Inspire, Fight, Educate, an organization focused on diversity with a commitment to helping create a culture that addresses global concerns “in a positive, holistic and transforming way.”

Correction: The firm's name was originally misspelled as Adler, Pollack and Sheehan.
