Fellowships provide financial assistance to students who wish to work with a public interest or government organization. They are usually competitive and require early application.

Please note that fellowship application guidelines, eligibility, and award structures will vary. Read the related information carefully and contact the Public Interest Law Center if you have any questions.


  • Fellowships are open to all first and second year law students (and third year evening division law students) enrolled in the Shepard Broad Law Center.
  • Students must make arrangements for placement at a public interest or government organization prior to applying.
  • The public service organization can be located in any geographic area.
  • Applications must be fully completed and submitted in a timely fashion. No exceptions will be made.
  • Students who receive fellowships must fulfill the terms of employment as submitted in the application. If a student does not complete such terms, he or she will be required to repay all money awarded.
