LL.M Post Graduate Fellowship

Exclusively for Penn Law LL.M graduates, this fellowship allows a 2020 graduate to pursue a post-graduate fellowship to work on Rule of Law and Human Rights with local, state, federal and international government agencies, public defender offices, public interest organizations, NGOs, or international tribunals (e.g. International Court of Justice, International Criminal Court) in the U.S. or globally. Positions with other courts will not be eligible for funding.

How it Works

Penn Law LL.M students may apply for this Fellowship. One Fellow will be chosen each year.

Application & Selection Process

Applications for LL.M Fellowship are due on Monday, March 30th by 12:00PM. Decisions will be communicated to all applicants in May.

Completed applications must be submitted via Symplicity #14164. Late applications will not be considered. The fellowship will be awarded on a competitive basis.

Students may apply for the LL.M Fellowship funding before they have secured a placement. A conditional award letter can be provided in order to help secure a commitment from prospective placements.

Proposals will be reviewed by a Committee.  Interviews will be conducted in person whenever possible, and will be conducted via Skype or video-conference when necessary. The Committee will announce the fellow in May 2020.


The fellowship carries a stipend of $6,000.
