Public Service Scholarships

Each year the Public Service Scholars Program provides scholarships to second and third year students with a demonstrated commitment to studying and working in public service and promoting it at the Law School. “Public service” for this program includes legal work in non-profit, government and legislative settings. Scholars are selected based on their commitment to public service, financial need, and academic credentials.  The four 2016-2017 recipients were awarded scholarships of $4,000.

Scholars work closely with the Justice Center serving on the Student Advisory Board, advising the Center about student awards, pro bono projects, website design, and public interest speakers. Scholars may assist with conferences sponsored by the Center, conduct outreach with student organizations, and work on other projects.

Applications for the 2017-2018 scholarships will be due in August 2017.
