The Federalist Society is proud to offer up to 5 $2,000 stipends for Federal Work Study eligible students working in public interest or for the government in order to increase their understanding and ability to implement the mission of the Federalist Society over their careers. This $2000 in funds will be matched with $3000 in federal work study so the stipend will enable students earning work study to have $5,000 total over the summer.
The Federalist Society was founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be. This entails reordering priorities within the legal system to place a premium on individual liberty, traditional values, and the rule of law.
This stipend is available for up to five 1L or 2L students who acquire an internship consistent with these principles and complete the summer federal work study application process through the Law School. In order to apply for this stipend, we require a resume and a cover letter that includes why your internship will help you better understand and implement these principles over your legal career. At the end of the summer, we will ask that you submit a 1-2 page essay on how your summer increased your understanding of the principles championed by the Federalist Society. Please send your resume and cover letter to Katelynn McBride at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, March 3 if you wish to apply. Decisions will be made by Friday, March 24.
