Funding Opportunities for Summer Internships

There are multiple opportunities to apply for funding for your summer public interest position! The law school awards subsidies for students who work during the summer for a broad range of public sector legal employers, including non-profit organizations and governmental entities (but not including judicial internships). Funding is also available from EJF, the KACIF program, and other sources. The deadline to apply for law school subsidies is March 26 at 5pm.
Visit our ``Funding Your Public Interest Career`` page for the details and application.

Diversity Opportunities for 1Ls

Many firms and employers offer scholarship or fellowship opportunities for students who self-identify as diverse as part of their diversity initiatives. The majority of opportunities for summer associate positions and other summer opportunities for 1Ls will have deadlines in December through March.
