Click here if you are having trouble viewing this message.


Veterans, immigrants, low-wage workers, tenants: many communities throughout the country face systemic injustices, yet few are fully equipped to fight back. Through funding, training, and support, Equal Justice Works Fellowships empower emerging public interest attorneys to tackle such issues on behalf of their communities. Fellows design their own projects, allowing them to jump-start sustainable public interest careers while addressing the issues they deem most pressing.

Equal Justice Works Fellows create innovative solutions. This could mean aiding refugees seeking new homes, helping children and families secure healthcare, combating youth homelessness, or tackling any number of other important issues. No matter the issue one is addressing, to be an Equal Justice Works Fellow is to be the solution.

This year, we are accepting applications in any issue area for the 2018 Fellowship class, between June 28 and September 27, 2017. The application process is competitive, and we want to ensure candidates stay on track to submit top-tier proposals, every step of the way.

For best results, we encourage Fellowship applicants to attend an informational webinar prior to submitting an application. All sessions will occur from 3-4 pm EST. Register here.
