Awards include partial tuition scholarship and faculty mentors

American University Washington College of Law (WCL) Law & Government LL.M. program will offer Law & Government Fellowships for "exceptional students passionately committed to their field of specialization."

The fellowship includes up to a half-tuition waiver for students enrolled in the full-time LL.M. program, as well as a research assistant position with a WCL faculty member, a designated faculty mentor who can assist with a publishable research paper, and the opportunity to plan a discussion panel or conference focused on their area of specialization.

There are 14 potential specialization areas, although fellowships may not be awarded in all specialization areas in a given year. The total number of fellowships awarded will be dependent on the quality of applicants and availability of research assistant positions.

Along with gaining admission to the Law & Government LL.M. program, fellowship applicants should submit a brief statement of interest in the fellowship and a writing sample.

For more information, please visit the WCL LL.M. in Law & Government Fellowship Opportunities website.
