Applications are now being accepted from 1Ls and 2Ls for the Greenebaum Summer Fellowships. The Greenebaum Summer Fellowships will provide summer grants to Brandeis students working in unpaid public service jobs this summer. Students must find their own placements for the summer and cannot apply for the fellowship until they secure a placement. Students interested in the fellowship cannot receive a salary for their work or externship credit.
The application for the fellowship is available on Symplicity in the Documents Library located under the Resources Tab. The fellowship awards will be granted on a rolling basis between March and the end of the school year to allow interested students time to find a public service position and apply. Students need only apply once and their application will considered for each of the fellowship awards. Positions with nonprofits, government agencies and judges will be eligible for the Greenebaum Fellowship. These fellowships are geared to allow students to pursue opportunities throughout the country. The committee will continue to accept applications for Greenebaum Fellowships until May 1. Contact Jina Scinta in the Office of Professional Development (firstname.lastname@example.org) after you have reviewed the application if you have questions.
