Post Graduate Short Term Public Service Funding 2014

Class of 2014

The Post-Graduate Fellowship Program was initiated in 2013 and seeks to support new UW law graduates who are seeking employment, and who wish to provide legal services for underserved populations, by providing limited financial support while Fellows continue to search for permanent positions after the bar exam. This support will allow Fellows to continue to develop skills, contacts, and professional experience through short-term volunteer work, enabling them to better compete for permanent positions once they become available.

Each fellow must volunteer with an eligible sponsor organization, doing work that requires a JD or draws heavily on the Fellow’s legal education and training. Eligible work may include, for example, legal advocacy, direct legal services, impact litigation, or community education and organizing.

Fellowship awards will consist of a maximum of $1500 per Fellow, renewable on a monthly basis, for a maximum of four months (up to $6000 total). Fellowships must begin between August 1, 2014 and September 30, 2014, and may end no later than January 31, 2015. Fellowships will end when the Fellow finds a permanent position or at the end of the four-month fellowship period, whichever comes sooner. Recipients and sponsoring agencies will be required to certify that they will adhere to each of the goals and guidelines of the Fellowship program.

The University of Washington School of Law is accepting applications from June 2014 graduates for a limited number of short-term, post-graduate Fellowships. Applications can be accessed on Symplicity and must be uploaded to Symplicity no later than Friday, May 2, 2014 at 11:59 p.m.
