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:
Attention: The Public Service Summer Grant is a Georgetown-sponsored grant. The University has suspended all University-sponsored or related student international travel through May 15, 2020. Due to the evolving circumstances, is it increasingly unlikely that Georgetown will provide funding for international internships for Summer 2020. If you are planning to work internationally this summer, please contact your OPICS and/or OCS advisor promptly to discuss your summer plans. Please monitor the University’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resource Center page at https://www.georgetown.edu/coronavirus/ and the Law Center’s FAQs at https://www.law.georgetown.edu/covid-19-updates/covid-19-update-for-georgetown-law-community-members/faqs/ for ongoing updates. Please also continue to read any and all emails from the University’s Senior Administrators regarding travel.
Georgetown offers guaranteed summer funding for 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 either the Grant. PSJD also offers additional funding resources to explore.
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. To learn more about LRAP, additional federal loan repayment programs and other ways to afford a post-graduate career in public interest law, read Loan Repayment and Financing a Public Interest Career.
