Fellowships and Scholarships
Moritz College of Law Funding Opportunities
Finn International Post-Graduate Service Fellowship
The Finn International Post-Graduate Service Fellowship was 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 Fellowship, 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 Finn Fellowship enables one graduating Moritz J.D. student to devote 12 months to public interest training and legal service outside of the United States with a one-year, non-renewable stipend of $60,000.

Squire Patton Boggs Foundation Public Service Fellowship
The cornerstone of the Squire Patton Boggs Foundation is the Public Policy Fellowship Program, which launched in 2005. One Moritz College of Law student will be nominated to receive $5,000 to work during the summer to advance public policy issues, for either a non-profit organization, NGO or government institution (but not a for-profit organization). Preference will be given to students with strong interest in international matters although the work can be either in the United States or abroad. Applicants to the Washington D.C. Externship Program are not eligible to apply. Read more about the Public Policy Fellowship program on the “Corporate Responsibility” section of Squire Patton Bogg’s website.

Vogel International Fellowship
The Vogel International Fellowship was created in 2005 due to the generosity of Moritz College of Law alumnus Mr. Stephen Vogel.

Each year, several awards of up to $1,000 are granted to need and merit-based applicants participating in one of the Moritz College of Law’s sponsored education abroad programs.
