Below is a sample of organizations that have traditionally hosted fellows in the past.
Please be aware that this is just a sample of organizations.
As with all organizations, contact each organization for specific deadlines and application procedures. Some of these organizations may host fellows with project-based fellowships, such as the Skadden and EJW, others may have their own organization-based fellowships, and a few may host both types of fellowships. Also check PSJD and OPIA’s Insiders’ Guide to Successful Fellowship and Grant Applications. You are strongly encouraged to apply to multiple opportunities for support.
If you are interested in applying for a fellowship, make an appointment with Fellowships Director, Judy Murciano.
