The Chicago Bar Foundation Sun-Times Public Interest Law Fellowship Program - CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
Through a generous $2 million cy pres award from a case involving the Chicago Sun-Times, The Chicago Bar Foundation (CBF) created The Chicago Bar Foundation Sun-Times Public Interest Law Fellowship Program. First awarded in 2007, the CBF awards five annual fellowships of up to $50,000 per fellowship(payable over five years) to individual legal aid or public interest law attorneys who meet the eligibility criteria and demonstrate the following:
1) A commitment to public interest work,
2) Academic achievement in law school, and
3) Outstanding character and integrity.
Attorneys who have chosen to pursue careers in legal aid or public interest law at a CBF-funded organization or at a qualifying legal aid organization serving other parts of Illinois are eligible to apply for the Fellowship (a list of eligible organizations is included in the Fellowship Guidelines).
Through this program, the CBF ultimately will provide loan repayment assistance to 50 outstanding legal aid and public interest lawyers over a ten-year period. One Fellowship each year may be awarded to a legal aid attorney who serves Illinois residents outside of Cook County.
The application deadline for the 2012 Sun-Times Fellowship is Thursday, July 12, 2012. Application materials are available at www.chicagobarfoundation.org. Please contact Ryanne Easley at (312)554-1247 or email@example.com with any questions.
Please note that a recipient of The CBF Anderson Public Interest Law Fellowship is not eligible to receive The CBF Chicago Sun-Times Public Interest Law Fellowship, and vice versa.
