Summer and Post-Graduate Funding
Georgetown provides substantial support to students and alumni pursuing non-profit and government legal opportunities through a variety of different programs. Explore how our summer funding programs and post-graduate funding and debt-relief programs can help you launch your legal career.
Georgetown Summer Funding Programs
Georgetown offers guaranteed summer funding for J.D. students engaged in public service summer activities in the form of Public Service Summer Grants of $3250 (for 1L, 1E/J, 2E/J students) or $5500 (for 2L, 3E/J students). In addition, EJF Summer Augmenting Awards of $500 can be used to supplement the Grant. PSJD also offers additional funding resources to explore.
Note: The Public Service Summer Grant is a Georgetown-sponsored grant. Given the continued unpredictability of the global pandemic, it is not possible to determine the international travel policy for summer 2022 at this time. As of August 1, 2021, the University’s international travel policy for fully vaccinated students is as follows: Individual or independent University-related travel may be permitted to “lower risk regions,’ upon review by the University’s Travel Review Committee and approval by the relevant Senior Administrator. All other individual or independent University-related international travel remains prohibited. Please review the current travel policy for additional details. Please also continue to monitor the University’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resource Center, the Law Center’s FAQs, and messages from the University’s Senior Administrators regarding travel for ongoing updates.
Loan Repayment Assistance Programs
Georgetown’s Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) assists J.D. graduates in pursuing public interest careers. Graduates who qualify for LRAP benefits receive assistance with monthly student loan payments in the form of interest-free loans from Georgetown Law.
