//////////////////////

The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) is pleased to announce that it will offer a fully-funded Summer Law Fellowship for the first time in 2019. The competitive Fellowship will select 15-20 exceptional law students to receive full scholarships to participate in an academic internship experience in our nation’s capital over the summer.

TFAS Summer Law Fellowship

The TFAS Summer Law Fellowship will expand on the legal studies programming and constitutionally-focused curriculum that TFAS has offered to law students for more than 15 years. The intensive nine-week Fellowship will expose law students to issues of constitutional interpretation, limited government and free enterprise through legal internships, academic coursework, networking events and career development sessions. In addition, students will attend a law and public policy lecture series with leading constitutional scholars, judges and practicing attorneys.

Fellows will receive a full-tuition scholarship covering academic courses, legal internships, networking events, career development sessions and housing for the duration of the program.

The Fellowship begins May 23 and ends July 26. Applications are due by Feb. 20, 2019, and can be submitted online at TFAS.org/Law.

Fellows will be exposed to unique opportunities related to the field of law, including:

  • Two-credit hour course on Constitutional Originalism through TFAS academic partner, the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University
  • Legal internships with private law firms, lobbying firms, public interest legal organizations and legal departments of trade associations, corporations and government agencies throughout the Washington, D.C., area
  • Guest lectures and panel discussions on salient issues in law and policy
  • Site briefings at key legal institutions and courts
  • Professional development seminars, an attorney mentor program and networking events

Professors and legal experts from across the country voluntarily assist in the planning and fundraising for the Fellowship. Their generous support allows students a fully-funded, exclusive educational opportunity that is unlike any other program of its kind.
