Each year several summer grants are awarded to students who are taking unpaid or low-paying summer public interest and public sector jobs. Funding for these grants comes from several sources.
In 2014, over $400,000 was awarded to students from law school and student-raised funds. There were 135 first- and second-year students who received funding; 94 received the maximum award of $3,500. Grant recipients worked in nonprofit organizations, legal aid offices, state and federal government agencies, public defender offices, federal and state judges, and district attorneys' offices across 17 states and abroad.
