John Paul Stevens Public Interest Fellowship

The John Paul Stevens Foundation is pleased to make available the John Paul Stevens Public Interest Fellowship to Howard University School of Law for the summer of 2020.  The Fellowship program enables two students who have finished their first or second year to work at least ten weeks** during the summer for either a not-for-profit organization or a government entity—students with judicial externs are not eligible.  The Stevens Fellows will be awarded $5,000 each. The Fellowship is looking for distinguished students with a passion, commitment, background and dedication to public interest work and/or public service.   

**Due to COVID-19, the Fellowship is flexible with a remote internship and an internship for less than 10 weeks. If an internship requests either of these accommodations, please provide an explanation in your statement of interest.
