Each year summer grants are awarded to students who are taking unpaid summer public interest and public sector jobs. Funding for these grants comes from several sources.
In 2017, over $146,000 was awarded to students from law school and student-raised funds. There were 54 first- and second-year students who received funding; 39 received the maximum award of $3,000. Grant recipients worked in nonprofit organizations, legal aid offices, state and federal government agencies, public defender offices, and district attorneys' offices across 7 states and one international placement.
