Delivering access to justice while preparing students to become excellent, ethical, and engaged lawyers.
Our Summer Public Interest Funding & Fellowship Program provides financial support for students immersed in an invaluable internship experience while providing access to justice to those that need it the most, in a broad range of emerging issues. Each summer, generous donor support allows a number of students to be selected for our fellowship program; these students have strong academic backgrounds, a dedicated heart for serving in the public interest, and a proven commitment to the providing access to justice.
Visit our blog, UB School of Law Responds, to read about our summer fellows experiences.
Currently, our Summer Public Interest Funding & Fellowship Program provides $1,500-$4,500 stipends to students with financial need who intern at a nonprofit organization, governmental agency, or in a law-related position designed to further the public interest. Funding is for students who work a minimum of 8 weeks, full-time work schedule (280 hours total). Students who work fewer weeks will receive a pro-rated stipend.
