Financial Support

The University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School’s commitment to lawyering in the public interest is unsurpassed. The Law School enables students to pursue careers in public service work by providing generous financial support.


Penn Carey Law Postgraduate Fellowships

Many of our students will lead lifelong careers as advocates for social justice. The first steps on this career path are challenging, and Penn Carey Law is committed to helping our students succeed through funding postgraduate fellowships. 

Penn Carey Law’s postgraduate fellowship program has been highly successful in launching the public interest careers of recent graduates. Since 2009, the Law School has supported over 90 fellows, all of whom either remained employed by their original host organization or secured public interest positions in the same field. Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis. Learn more about the work of recent Penn Fellows below.
