Squire Patton Boggs Foundation Public Policy Fellowship

Please submit a resume and completed application, which includes your responses to the prompts, as a single PDF to Mary Murphy in the Career Services Office at mary.murphy@law.utexas.edu by Monday, March 20, 2023.

The cornerstone of the Foundation is the Public Policy Fellowship Program, which launched in 2005. Each year, the Fellowship Program awards fellowships to exceptional first- and second-year law students who demonstrate a steadfast commitment to public service and developed an interest in public policy. These law students commit their summers to advance public policy issues through non-profit institutions, government agencies, and domestic or international organizations.

To date, the foundation has provided fellowships to more than 326 law students at 24 schools located throughout the US and overseas. The Fellowship Program reflects our industry-leading Public Policy Practice and its commitment to public service.

Students must arrange a public policy position for either a non-profit organization or a government institution. We expect each Fellow to work for at least eight weeks for the organization they have committed to. Students may use their Fellowship for internships in the United States or a foreign country.

This year, the Fellowship program will allow students to supplement their Fellowship award with funds from their Law School, the Bar Association, and/or employer. If you have questions about any of these aspects, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We plan to pair each Fellow with a mentor from within our Firm, as well as with a Fellowship alumni mentor. In addition, we will schedule several teleconferences during the summer to enable Fellows to share their experiences with us and with each other.
