Information on Fellowships

A number of excellent fellowship opportunities are available to law students over the summer months each year.  Fellowships can be a source of funding for students who want to engage in work that might not otherwise be remunerated.  Fellowships are offered which fund opportunities for students to work on social justice topics or with public interest organizations.  Others are available for students wanting to work with small law firms or sole practitioners.  Fellowships must be applied for in advance and typically the selection process is quite competitive.  Fellowships are typically granted based on both the strength of the applicant and the quality of the project/work being proposed.   

All fellowship opportunities are advertised to students as the deadlines approach. Typically, applications will be due in March each year.  Detailed information about each fellowship opportunity will be published in The Source Document Library as well as on Brightspace under “Bourse de stage | Fellowship” section which can be found on your home page.
