Funding for Summer Fellowships


Harvard College students who have their own summer public service projects in mind are encouraged to submit grant proposals to our office.  Below, you'll find a brief overview of CPIC's three grant sources, but please click through the left navigation menu for more comprehensive program information.  Students who receive grants from CPIC are expected to adhere to the terms outlined in the "CPIC Summer Fellows - Expectations for Students and Organizations" document (this will be posted in November 2018).

Arthur Liman Public Interest Law Summer Fellowship Program: students can work anywhere in the U.S. on a public interest law project and earn a stipend of $5,000; three to five students are typically selected to participate in this program; this program has a January 11, 2019 student application deadline.
