Five Texas Law students receive 2016 G. Rollie White Trust Public Interest Summer Fellowships

Five students at the University of Texas School of Law have been selected to receive G. Rollie White Trust Public Interest Summer Fellowships for the coming summer. The program will provide each fellow with a $4,500 stipend to work fulltime for at least 10 weeks providing legal services to underrepresented individuals or communities.

The fellowships are made possible by a generous gift from the G. Rollie White Trust, which also supports the G. Rollie White Public Service Scholarship Program. Both programs are administered by the William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law at the Law School.
