Public Service Post-Graduate Fellowship
Class of 2013
The Post-Graduate Fellowship Program 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.

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 September 15, 2013 and October 1, 2013, and may end no later than January 31, 2014.
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
