The Washington Lawyers' Committee regularly sponsors individuals seeking fellowship funding for civil rights/public interest work, such as the Skadden, Equal Justice Works (EJW), Soros, Arthur Liman Public Interest, and Pickering Fellowships. Information about these fellowships can be found on the funding organizations' websites:

To submit an application, please send via email: (1) a cover letter indicating the fellowship program(s) from which you expect to solicit funding and your Project(s) or issue areas of interest; (2) your resume; (3) an official transcript; (4) a writing sample of ten pages or less; and (5) a list of at least two references to: Rhonda Cunningham Holmes. Please submit your application prior to July 1 of the year in which you expect to submit a Skadden or Equal Justice Works application. For other fellowships, the Committee does not impose a deadline, but please submit your application within enough time to account for the fellowship's application deadline.

The Committee is an Equal Opportunity employer. Minorities, women, veterans and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
