The Frederick B. Abramson Public Interest Fellowship is a fellowship for up to $10,000 awarded to one or more graduating law students, judicial law clerks, or practicing attorneys wishing to work in public interest law. The recipients must exemplify Fred Abramson's commitment to the use of law to advance the community and public interest by committing at least one year's employment with a non-profit organization in the District of Columbia. Financial need is a critical factor in awarding the fellowships. Although applicants working at national organizations will be considered, preference will be given to applicants whose work most directly benefits District of Columbia residents. Minority applicants are particularly encouraged to apply. Application requirements, along with the application form, are available at www.abramsonfoundation.org. The deadline for submission of the application is August 21, 2006.
