Covey Fellowships for Summer Work in Public Interest Environmental Law
The Environmental Law Program is offering four $7,500 fellowships to Harvard Law
School students doing work within the public interest environmental law field during the
summer of 2010. Qualifying work could include positions at government entities, NGOs,
or other public interest organizations working on issues such as climate change, land
acquisition and management, pollution control, energy, carbon trading, environmental
justice, or biodiversity conservation. This is not an exclusive list of employers or fields,
and students are invited to think broadly about work that might qualify.
Applicants should be students who are returning to HLS in the fall of 2010. Experience
with environmental law is not a requirement for the fellowship, and those new to the field
are encouraged to apply.
Applicants should first secure their summer position, and then apply for the fellowship;
applications by students who have not secured a summer position will not be considered.
The Environmental Law Program may be able to assist students in making contact with
potential employers with which the Program has a relationship; students interested in
soliciting the Environmental Law Program’s assistance in this fashion should contact
Kathy Curley at email@example.com.
Applications should include: a description of the organization where the student will be
employed, a brief description of the summer projects the applicant will undertake, the
name of the applicant’s supervisor, a transcript, and a statement of interest conveying the
reasons why the applicant was drawn to the job and any background the applicant has in
environmental law. Applications should be submitted by March 29, 2010 to Kathy
Curley at firstname.lastname@example.org. Successful applicant
