Bradley Student Fellowships

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
The Stanford Constitutional Law Center seeks applications from current 2Ls and 3Ls at Stanford Law School for Bradley Student Fellowships for the academic year 2014-2015. Completed applications, including recommendations, are due by Saturday, November 1, 2014.

Bradley Student Fellowships are designed to encourage student research and scholarship in the field of constitutional law. Successful applicants must demonstrate outstanding potential to publish constitutional law scholarship.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Bradley Fellows receive advice and feedback on their scholarship from the Constitutional Law Center’s post-graduate Fellows and Faculty Director, and a stipend of $5,000.

Bradley Fellows are expected to attend Constitutional Law Center events, to prepare an original piece of constitutional scholarship for publication, to take at least two credits of independent study to focus on their project, and to present their work to the Center’s post-graduate Fellows and Director. Bradley Fellows may use the fellowship to begin a new paper or refine a work in progress.

ELIGIBILITY AND APPLICATION PROCESS
Applicants will be evaluated based on their record of academic and scholarly achievement and, especially, the quality of their proposed research topic.

Applications for the academic year 2014-2015 are due by Saturday, November 1, 2014. Eligibility is limited to current 2Ls or 3Ls at Stanford Law School.

Applications must be sent to conlawcenter@law.stanford.edu and include, as attachments to a single email, the following:

  • a research proposal (maximum 1,500 words);
  • a writing sample (please use an academic paper if possible);
  • a curriculum vitae; and
  • PDF(s) of law-school transcript(s) (unofficial copies are fine).

In addition, applicants must ensure that the Constitutional Law Center receives, at the same email address and by the same date, two letters of recommendation. These recommendations should be emailed directly from the recommenders, and they should focus on the applicant’s scholarly capacities and potential. Informal letters from faculty members are preferred (formalities, including letterhead, are unnecessary).

For additional information, you may reach the Constitutional Law Center by email at conlawcenter@law.stanford.edu.
