Potential Funding in Texas for 2011 Equal Justice Works Fellowships

The Equal Justice Works Fellowship Program provides financial and other forms of support to lawyers working on innovative legal projects throughout the U.S. The two-year Fellowship offers salary support (up to $39,000 annually), loan repayment assistance, and a national training and leadership development program.

Equal Justice Works recruits law firms, corporations, bar associations, foundations and individuals to fund most of our Fellowships. We refer to these funding partners as "sponsors."

This year, we have sponsor interest in Texas.

We strongly encourage any candidates interested in working in Texas for two years beginning next fall to consider submitting an application this fall.

More information and the 2011 Equal Justice Works Fellowships application is now available at

The application deadline is September 15, 2010, at 5:00 p.m. EDT.
