Gallogly Family Foundation Public Interest Law Fellowship

The Gallogly Family Foundation created the Public Interest Law Fellowship to provide opportunities for new lawyers to gain experience in public interest work and to improve access to quality legal services. This is a one-year fellowship with the option to renew for a second year.

Applicants must secure a sponsoring nonprofit host organization and, together with the organization, submit a proposal for a fellowship project. The project can be part of the organization’s ongoing programs or a new project developed with the organization. Projects must provide direct civil legal services to underrepresented individuals including those living in poverty and/or those deprived of their civil or human rights.

The fellow will be employed by the sponsoring organization and will receive the salary and benefits of a similarly experienced employee at the organization. The Foundation will provide $55,000 toward the fellow’s salary per year.  The sponsoring organization must agree to supply and fund the additional salary, if above $55,000, as well as health insurance and any fringe benefits available to full-time employees with similar experience.  The fellow must be supervised by a licensed attorney.  If offered a fellowship, the fellow and sponsoring organization will sign agreements regarding their fellowship obligations.

See the profiles at the bottom of this page for more information about the fellows and their fellowship projects.
