Fellowships and Scholarships
Moritz College of Law Funding Opportunities
The Finn International Summer and Post-Graduate Service Fellowships were established in 2015 by the empowering philanthropy of Mike and Janet Finn. As longstanding partners in the public interest training and global service visions of the Moritz College of Law, Mr. and Mrs. Finn’s generosity made the Public Service Law Center at Moritz possible. Now, through the Finn Fellowships, the College is able to expose law students who possess a demonstrated interest in international service to the realities of law in a complex global society. The Fellowship provides students and recent graduates with financial support for training and educational experiences in an international setting.
