Catalyst Fellowships

A growing number of our graduates seek to launch careers in government agencies or in international organizations where project-based fellowships may be less effective than funded staff volunteers.  In response, Penn Law’s Catalyst Fellowships funds students who have secured unpaid volunteer positions with local, state, federal and international government agencies, public defender offices, NGOs, or international tribunals.
