The Baron & Budd Public Interest Summer Fellowships Program provides funding for up to 5 students.

A sponsoring organization must be a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit providing legal services and/or advocacy to underrepresented individuals or communities. Government agencies, labor unions, and legislative offices do not qualify as a sponsoring organization.  A public defender office does not qualify unless it is organized as a 501(c)(3).

The fellowships are supported by generous funding from Baron & Budd, PC.
