Women’s Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program

The Women's Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program (WLPPFP) offers Fellowships for public interest lawyers from the United States who are committed to advancing women's rights throughout their careers. Throughout the Fellowship year, participants gain invaluable experience by working on women's issues in Washington, D.C. with a public interest organization or governmental agency and by participating in educational and professional development opportunities organized by WLPPFP.

All Fellowships provide an incomparable opportunity to work with leaders in the women's legal community, to gain tremendous experience promoting women's rights, and to sharpen leadership and advocacy skills through in-depth training sessions provided by the Program. All but two of the Fellowships are one-year positions, commencing at the beginning of September and running through the end of August the following year. This Fellowship is being offered for the 2014-2015 term. Applications are due November 15, 2013. Applicants must either be a law school graduate or in their final year of law school, and must show a demonstrated commitment to advancing women's rights throughout their careers. Applications must be postmarked by the deadline, and early applications are encouraged. Fellowship selection will be conducted throughout the spring and summer.
