Ford Foundation Will Pay Students Well For Doing Good
Dean M. Elizabeth Magill spoke with the National Law Journal's Karen Sloan about the newly announced Ford Foundation grant which will provide $15,000 grants to 25 Stanford Law School students to work in the field of public interest law next summer (2013).
Public interest-minded students at four of the country's most prestigious law schools have the chance to snag lucrative 10-week fellowships next summer.
The Ford Foundation on September 13 announced plans to place as many as 100 students from Harvard Law School, Stanford Law School, New York University School of Law and Yale Law School in public interest summer jobs in 2013.
"This is an impressive new investment by the Foundation," Stanford dean Elizabeth Magill said. "Recipients will benefit from incredibly generous support, develop a deeper understanding of global and domestic issues and become the leading edge of the new generation of lawyers devoted to advancing the public good through law."
