Study Break Public Service Stipend Program

During Study Break 2015 we will be awarding Study Break Public Service Stipends to support unpaid summer internships in the public sector. The Study Break Public Service Stipends will be funded by donations from sponsors of the Study Break.

Students who are selected will receive a stipend of up to $4,000 to support at least 400 hours (10 weeks) of unpaid work in internships with a government agency or a 501(c)(3) public interest organization. Internships with judicial courts are not eligible.

Students who are interested in applying for a Study Break Public Service Stipend must secure an internship with an eligible organization, designate a supervising attorney at that organization, and apply. Both the value and number of stipends awarded depends on the availability of funding; selection is expected to be competitive.
