Applications will be evaluated based on combination of factors including scholarship (grades), writing, and community involvement/ meaningful contributions to diversity programs at law school. If selected as a finalist, the applicant will participate in an interview with a selection committee, which will also be considered in evaluating each application. The application period is between July 15 and August 15 each year. Decisions shall be made by September 15 for positions for the next summer’s fellowships.
