August 1 Deadline: Shapiro Application for Academic Year Public Sector Internships
The Law School plans to award twelve Shapiro Fellowships to students who will begin their third year of full-time law school coursework in the fall of 2016 and/or spring of 2017. These $7,500 tuition remission awards are for students providing public interest legal services with government or nonprofit employers located in the Washington metropolitan area.
Fellows must work 20 hours per week for either one or two semesters. Unlike the summer Fellowships, students MAY NOT receive academic credit under the Field Placement Program or any clinic for work done for these Fellowships. Recipients of Shapiro Public Service Fellowships are not allowed to receive any compensation from their employer nor other public interest subsidies from the George Washington University, although they may receive merit or need-based scholarships from the Law School, as well as public interest subsidies from sources outside the University.
