Summer Fellowships

The Klau Center for Civil and Human Rights sponsors summer fellowships for work in public interest organizations that promote civil or human rights, and/or the enforcement of federal rights on behalf of underrepresented minorities.

A Klau Center Summer Fellowship for work inside the United States will total $2000, which can be combined with $3000 of federal work-study funding upon application to the Law School. Klau Center Fellowship amounts for work outside the United States may be greater because federal work-study funding is unavailable for such positions.


Eligibility

Notre Dame law students who acquire a summer internship consistent with the above description are eligible for a Klau Center Summer Fellowship. Both domestic and international internships are eligible for consideration. Federal work-study funding is only available for work inside the United States.


Application Requirements

  • Current resume
  • Academic transcript
  • Cover letter describing the proposed internship and how it relates to the Center's mission
  • Each successful awardee will need to secure a written internship offer from the placement organization.
  • Each summer fellow is required to organize a public presentation on the topic of her or his work during the next academic year.

Interested applicants should send required materials to Heidi Baguer at hbaguer@nd.edu. Application deadline is Wednesday, March 27, 2019
