Summer Funding

Each year, Georgetown Law provides guaranteed funding for summer public interest work. Public Service Summer Grants (or “summer funding”) are available for all non-graduating J.D. students, enrolled in the J.D. program, and engaged in significant law-related public service activity during the summer.

Typically students receive summer funding in the form of a non-service stipend and the Law Center’s Office of Public Interest and Community Service (OPICS) administers the summer funding program. Please watch this page for more information on possible IIEL summer research funded by OPICS opportunities, which will be made available at the end of the Spring semester.

Student Assistant

IIEL is no longer accepting applications for the Student Assistant position for the Spring 2022 semester, however students are encouraged to apply this coming fall. Please watch this page for more detail. Candidates eligible for the Federal Work Study program are encouraged to apply.

Postgraduate Research Fellowship

As of 2021, the IIEL happily considers requests to host individuals for research and project fellowships in the area of international economic law, with a focus on financial regulation (fintech) and sovereign debt. The postgraduate research fellow would be particularly involved in the Institute’s Sovereign Debt Forum (an interdisciplinary research hub and a platform for capacity building, policy development, and research-dissemination programs) and the Institute’s work on fintech, financial inclusion, and diversity.

This call for applications includes any current law students from any ABA-accredited law school seeking a postgraduate fellowship. This Fellowship will be partially funded by the Georgetown Justice Fellowship. It can also be combined with partial or full-funding from an external source or program funded by your school.
