Student Bar Foundation Fellowships Awarded
Congratulations to the recipients of the 2012 Student Bar Foundation Fellowships! The Student Bar Foundation was able to award more than $9,000 in fellowships this year. There were a number of outstanding applications this year. Everyone who made a contribution to the success of the SBF Charity Auction received a fellowship, as well as applicants demonstrating financial need, a commitment to public service, and a connection to the mission of the SBF.
The 2012 Fellowship recipients will focus their summer service on (1) delivering legal services to the poor and indigent, (2) promoting law-related education; and (3) improving the judiciary, the legal profession, and citizen access to the legal system.
Students receiving fellowships will be working at a number of law-related public interest jobs this summer including judicial internships, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Kentucky Court of Appeals, Children’s Law Center of Massachusetts, Rhode Island Center for Law and Public Policy, and the Nashville District Attorney’s Office. These students will spend their summers working in Kentucky, Tennessee, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts.
Because the SBF is a student-run organization, we need students who are dedicated to our mission to help solicit donations for the SBF auction next year. Please email Ahmed Safeeullah at firstname.lastname@example.org for information about getting involved and helping the SBF continue to support Brandeis students dedicated to public interest work.
