HLS J.D. students who have completed at least one year of law school by the coming summer, and HLS S.J.D. students in residence, are eligible to apply for Chayes International Public Service Fellowships. These summer fellowships provide students with the opportunity to spend eight weeks working with  governmental or non-governmental organizations concerned with issues of an international scope or relevant to countries in transition.

HLS students who have been awarded Chayes Fellowships in previous years are eligible to apply, as long as they meet all other eligibility guidelines.

The process of evaluating placement options, applying for a Chayes Fellowship, and finalizing summer plans begins in the fall semester and continues into the spring.  Visit these pages for helpful advice, a complete timeline, and more details about each step.
