PILS Fellowship Program
LSU Law, administered through PILS, provides financial stipends for students working unpaid public interest summer employment. These fellowships are limited and number and require the applicant go through a competitive process.
In order to be eligible for a fellowship, you must:
- have secured employment within the realm of public interest. Even if your employment’s connection to public interest is not obvious, you are still encouraged to apply and will be given the opportunity to explain the job’s relationship to public service.
- not be compensated for the employment in anyway, including both payment or class credit,
- have filled out and submitted the paper application, and
- have completed your interview.
In the past, these fellowships have funded summer employment at public defender offices, attorney general offices, legal aid societies, environmental organizations, district attorney offices, immigration non-profits, civil rights groups, and more.
