Squire Patton Boggs Foundation Sustained Impact Fellowship – Racial Justice


In 2019, the Squire Patton Boggs Foundation added to its on-going Fellowship program by establishing the Sustained Impact Fellowship. In response to the killing of George Floyd in June 2020, Squire Patton Boggs has created three Racial Justice Fellowships. They will be with the Lawyers Committee on Civil Rights Under Law, working on voting rights; the Charlottesville, Virginia Police Department, working on police- Black community issues; and Lone Star Justice Alliance in Dallas, working on juvenile justice in minority communities in Dallas. A grant of $5000 will be made to the law school of each student receiving a Racial Justice Fellowship.

About the Fellowship

The placement offer will be facilitated by the SPB Foundation and SPB attorneys will provide supervision and mentorship for the Fellows on the ground.


Preference given to students with a passion for public interest work and/or public service.
