Fellowship: Chayes International Public Service Fellowships, Harvard Law School
February 1, 2020
Harvard Law School Summer Public Interest Funding covers work abroad as well as in the US and students may apply for supplementary funding though such programs as the Chayes International Public Service Fellowship. As well, staff in International Legal Studies, OCS and OPIA can help students identify summer placements in other countries.
Strong candidates are students who are seeking to complement their academic course work at Harvard Law School with practical, hands-on experience with organizations that work to effect change and address legal, political and social needs. Students should be able to articulate the way in which their proposed summer placements will help them to achieve their particular educational, professional and personal objectives. Although it is not necessary to have a confirmed placement before applying for the Chayes Fellowship, the application should demonstrate a thoughtful, considered and proactive approach to planning a summer project abroad
