In spring 2022, Texas Law launched the Summer Public Service Program (SPSP), which provides a stipend to every student working in an unpaid summer internship in the public sector, including nonprofits, government organizations, and legislative offices in the U.S. and abroad. Students will receive full fellowships of $5,000 for 10 weeks of work with eligible sponsoring organizations. Half-fellowships will be available for students who work with an eligible sponsoring organization for at least five weeks.
The SPSP serves as an umbrella for existing and new fellowships created through funds raised by Texas Law Fellowships (a student organization), gifts from generous individual and institutional donors, and grants. The William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law administers the program.
The Law School seeks additional support for the new SPSP and encourages those interested in contributing or creating a new named fellowship to contact Eden Harrington, Associate Dean for Experiential Education.
