Squire Patton Boggs Foundation Sustained Impact Fellowship – Puerto Rico


In 2019, the Squire Patton Boggs Foundation added to its on-going Fellowship program by establishing the Sustained Impact Fellowship. The Sustained Impact Fellowship will focus on disaster relief, community rebuilding and access to legal services in post-Hurricane Maria Puerto Rico. The goal of this project is to create a model for bringing sustained and direct pro bono legal services to communities affected by natural disaster. One Moritz College of Law student will be nominated to take part in this fellowship and compete to receive $5,000 to work at a non-profit organization in Puerto Rico.

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.


The student nominated must speak fluent Spanish.
