Are you doing unpaid or low-paid public interest work this summer? Students for Access to Justice, the OU Legal Clinic, and the OU College of Law are committed to supporting students who embody the University of Oklahoma motto by working Civi et Reipublicae – for the citizen, and for the state. We are sponsoring more than $13,000 worth of summer fellowship funding this summer. Applications are due Friday and are available at student services or by emailing email@example.com.
The Boren Fellowship is new this year, sponsored by a generous donation from two OU Law alumni in honor of President and Mrs. David Boren. The Coats Fellowship is sponsored entirely by the generous donations of your fellow students, faculty, and staff. The Marjorie P. Maute Memorial Fellowship is funded by Professor Maute and outside donors in honor of her late mother. All of these fellowships are available to students doing any public interest work this summer. Eligible organizations include legal aid organizations providing services to persons of limited means, such as those receiving funding from the Legal Services Corporation; other non-profit organizations dedicated to serving the needs of persons of limited means; federal, state or local public defenders or prosecutors; any federal or state agency doing law-related work; any international non-governmental public interest or human rights organization doing law-related work; and virtually any other law-related non-profit organization!
The Cindy Foley Memorial Fellowship is funded by the OU Legal Clinic, family and friends of Cindy Foley, and the annual Race Judicata fundraiser. Students must commit to work in a public defense office or organization.
Past fellows have worked at organizations including Legal Aid of Oklahoma, Catholic Charities, the Dallas County Public Defender, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Oklahoma, the Equality Federation, Children at Risk, and Oklahoma Indian Legal Services.
