The HOPE Fellows Program allows public interest minded students to create summer dream jobs and work across the globe to effectuate change. The HOPE Public Interest Resource Center provides stipends to law students who work in uncompensated public interest jobs during the summer. HOPE Fellows work with local, national, and international public interest agencies and non-governmental organizations of their choosing.
Applications are available online here. Students must submit a completed fellowship application to the HOPE Public Interest Resource Center by February 14, 2014. Click here for more application specifics.
Since 2000, the Program has evolved from two local placements to twenty plus placements in locations such as Washington, D.C., New York City and Los Angeles, as well as international placements in countries such as Tanzania, Lebanon, England, and China.
