The 2009 Frank Douglass Public Interest Summer Fellowships will fund four students to work with public interest legal organizations to provide legal services to underrepresented individuals or groups. Fellows will receive a $5000 stipend and will be required to work a minimum of 400 hours. A sponsoring organization must be a non-profit organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Preference will be given to applicants who will work with organizations providing civil legal services in Texas.

These fellowships are supported by a generous gift from Scott, Douglass & McConnico, L.L.P. in memory of Frank Douglass, '58.

Summer 2009 is closed. For sample information, see:
