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. The University has suspended all University-sponsored or related student international travel. Students cannot receive the Public Service Summer Grant for internships outside their country of residence. Students may receive the Public Service Summer Grant for remote internships with international organizations and entities. If you are planning to work internationally for summer 2021, please contact your OPICS and/or OCS advisor to discuss your summer plans. Please monitor the University’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resource Center and the Law Center’s FAQs for ongoing updates. Please also continue to read any and all emails from the University’s Senior Administrators regarding travel.
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.
