Law School to Participate in John Paul Stevens Fellowship Program

MARCH 10, 2011—The University of Minnesota Law School will participate in the John Paul Stevens Public Interest Fellowship program for the next five years. The program will, each year, provide two law students grants of $5,000 to support their work in summer public interest law positions.

The scholarships are funded by a partnership between the Law School and the John Paul Stevens Public Interest Fellowship Foundation.

The Stevens Fellows will be selected based on their commitment to public service and their potential for excellence throughout their legal careers. Law students who secure a summer legal public interest position in either not-for-profit organizations or governmental entities are encouraged to apply.

The John Paul Stevens Fellowship Foundation was established by former law clerks of Stevens, an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1975 until his retirement in 2010.

The deadline to apply for the summer 2011 program is Friday, April 1, 2011. For more information and to apply, contact Dana Bartocci at bartocci@umn.edu or 612-625-4694.
