Summer Funding: Online Form

PURPOSE OF FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

The University of Chicago Law School is committed to supporting a range of summer public interest employment opportunities. To meet this commitment, the Heerey Fellowship Program provides a guaranteed award of $5,000 to 1L students who work in eligible non-profit or government law positions for at least eight full-time weeks of their first-year summer. Second-year students who work in qualifying public interest positions for eight full-time weeks are also eligible for a guaranteed award of $5,000 through the Chicago Law Foundation (“CLF”), or through other donor support. While participants in both of these programs may also earn up to $5,000 in other, external (non-Law School) summer funding, those who earn more than this amount, will be required to relinquish excess earnings at the end of the summer. 

The 2017 Summer Funding Application will be available May 1.
