The Edith Fine Fellowship was created in recognition of Judge Fine's '57 distinguished career in public service and is made possible by memorial gifts from family, friends, and colleagues. The Fellowship is awarded annually to a woman in the third year class of Harvard Law School who has demonstrated extraordinary leadership and commitment to pursuing public service work directly upon graduation for any or all of the following causes: protection of women's reproductive rights; civil or criminal legal assistance to the poor; and eradication of discrimination against women, minorities, or other groups which have historically suffered mistreatment in the United States. Among the jobs not eligible for support are judicial clerkships, academic appointments, and positions in private public interest law firms.
The Fellowship award for 2013 will be $1,000. Only one third-year woman will be awarded the Fine Fellowship. The deadline for applications is January 15, 2013. Applications should be sent to Alexa Shabecoff at email@example.com.
Please note that the application requirements are identical to those of the Kaufman, Skirnick, and Venture Fund Fellowships. You may apply for a Fine Fellowship in addition to the other fellowships; there are different parameters for what each will fund, but one application process.
Please submit your application materials to the Public Interest Fellowships Committee care of the Bernard Koteen Office of Public Interest Advising, Wasserstein Hall, Suite 4039 by 5:00 pm on January 15, 2013. Materials may be submitted in hard copy or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interviews of semi-finalists will be held in March.
Award announcements will be made in mid-May.
Questions should be directed to Alexa Shabecoff at email@example.com or 617-495-3108.
