Support for Public Interest

At Penn Law we recognize the importance of service and have strived to provide the atmosphere, support and resources necessary for our students to pursue this career goal successfully.

We have created a learning environment that’s ideal for students who seek a career in public service and encourage applicants with service backgrounds to apply here.

  • We offer fee waivers to all alumni and current members of Teach for America, AmeriCorps, and the Peace Corps, as well as any current or former member of any U.S. Military Branch.
  • We are also a proud participant of the Yellow Ribbon Program.

For more information about our other support programs for students pursuing public service careers, please see Toll Public Interest Center’s Funding Programs.
