Kent Justice Foundation Fellowship Program
The Kent Justice Foundation ("KJF") Summer Fellowship Program provides grants of up to $5,000 to students at the Chicago-Kent College of Law who have secured unpaid or low-paying public interest legal positions during the summer. These summer fellowships are awarded to help defray living expenses of deserving and committed students working in the public interest, as well as to provide much-needed legal assistance to public interest organizations.
Applications for the 2010 KJF Summer Fellowship Program are due in April (date for 2011 TBA). Applicants must secure an unpaid public interest position for the summer. In addition, applicants must demonstrate a commitment to the KJF mission by volunteering 10 hours during the academic year. Download the application here.
