Equal Justice America: Summer 2014 Funding Available for UT Law Students

We just received word that Equal Justice America (EJA) has additional summer fellowship funding for UT Law students. EJA fellowships fund the work of law students interning with domestic non-profits that provide civil legal services to the poor. While students without existing funding will be prioritized, students that have received funding through other sources are eligible to apply for additional support.

Interested students should submit: 1) a cover letter describing their commitment and interest in providing legal services to the poor (note: if you have received other summer funding, please indicate the amount and source in the cover letter), 2) a resume, and 3) an employment confirmation letter from the hiring organization. Letters of recommendation are optional. These application materials should be submitted to info@equaljusticeamerica.org with the subject line “Summer Fellowship Application.”

For additional insight, see this list of UT Law students who have received the fellowships in the past.
