Philanthropists Bruce (L’80) and Ann Blume made a gift of $10 million to establish the Blume Public Leadership Institute at Georgetown University Law Center.
Through the Institute, the Blume Public Interest Law Scholars Program provides full tuition scholarships to students who exhibit exceptional promise as future public leaders.
These Blume Public Interest Scholars engage in traditional and experiential legal studies, while training for lives as public officials, policy makers, thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and visionaries.
Blume Scholars engage in a combination of academic coursework, clinical pedagogy, and tailored experiential learning opportunities.
The Blume program at Georgetown is co-directed by Georgetown Professor and Appellate Courts Immersion Clinic Director Brian Wolfman, the Blume Faculty Director and Morgan Lynn-Alesker, Assistant Dean in the Office of Public Interest and Community Service (OPICS).
Also, OPICS coordinates the Blume Leaders in Residence program, where we welcome practicing public interest leaders to spend time advising, mentoring, and teaching Blume Scholars and other Georgetown students committed to public interest.
