Mar. 2: NYU Public Interest Fellowships Application Deadline

Posted on

The Public Interest Law Center (PILC) is excited to announce the expansion of its PUBLIC INTEREST FELLOWSHIPS PROGRAM. Previously, PILC has awarded one Public Interest Project Fellowship each year to a graduating 3L. This year, PILC will award multiple fellowships, and has expanded the program to include work on critical legal issues at an organization or government agency, in addition to project proposals. A description of the new Public Interest Fellowship and how to apply can be found here.

In addition, NYU will continue to award one REPRODUCTIVE FREEDOM AND WOMEN’S RIGHTS FELLOWSHIP (RFWRF) to a graduating 3L. RFWRF applicants may also be considered under the new Public Interest Fellowship program. A description of the RFWRF and how to apply can be found here.

In order to be considered for the NYU Public Interest Fellowship, all applicants must have first met with a PILC counselor to discuss their post-graduate job search and their fellowship proposal by February 14, 2020. Students who have already met with a PILC counselor in the course of preparing for other fellowship applications are not required to do so again. Students who have not yet met with a PILC counselor, as well as anyone who has questions or would like to discuss the program further, should contact Kathryn Neilson at

The application deadline for both the NYU Public Interest Fellowship and RFWRF is March 2, 2020. Students who wish to be considered under both fellowships should submit only one joint application.
