The Public Interest Summer Grant Program provides funding for students who are working in unpaid summer internships at public interest organizations. The application is typically available in January and due in late March. To see the application for 2017, click below:
Each spring, the law school hosts a Public Interest Career Fair at which nonprofit and government employers interview students for summer internships. The career fair typically takes place in early March, allowing students time to obtain an internship placement before applying for a summer grant.
Additional funding sources for summer public interest work can be found at http://www.psjd.org/Funding_Sources.
