The Peggy Browning Fellowship Program provides stipends to 60 to 70 law students who dedicate their summer to advancing the cause of workers' rights by working for labor unions, worker centers, the U.S. Department of Labor, union-side law firms and other nonprofit organizations. Summer Fellowship stipends will be a minimum of $5,000 per student for the ten-week employment period. In many cases, mentor organizations will supplement the stipend.
The Peggy Browning Fund works closely with their mentor organizations to ensure that each fellow experiences unique and challenging work assignments. Fellows gain the practical skills required to represent workers and enjoy opportunities to network with their peers and leaders in the field of public interest labor law.
The ten-week summer fellowship is available to 1st and 2nd year law students. The deadline to apply is January 17, 2014. Go to http://www.peggybrowningfund.org/fellowships for more information.
