Fellowship Application Form

We are still accepting fellowship applications for our summer 2021 program.

Since the original application deadline (Jan. 15, 2021), we have updated the list of fellowships that will be awarded in 2021. We expect to add additional positions during February. Keep watching for updates.

Only 1L and 2L law students are eligible to apply. This will be pro-rated for evening students. Students who will graduate by May 2021 are not eligible.

You may submit your applications all at once or separately. Up to 7 may be included on one application form; beyond that, a separate application form must be completed.

If you have any questions, or if you have difficulty completing the form or uploading your attachments, please contact Mary Anne Moffa at 267-273-7992 or mmoffa@peggybrowningfund.org.
