The Center’s Transnational Law Summer Fellowship provides a select group of JD students with funding to spend the summer session working abroad with local and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), private firms and government offices. Fellows develop their own research and advocacy projects in association with their host organizations. They also organize their own transportation, housing and logistics. The Center assists Fellows with these processes and provides funding to cover the costs of the summer placement. The Transnational Law Summer Fellowships are competitive. The application process begins early in the spring semester of each academic year. The Transnational Law Summer Fellowship is part of the Center’s commitment to supporting individually tailored, international experiential learning for students at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law.
