The Polikoff-Gautreaux Fellowship offers the opportunity for recent law school and public policy school graduates to develop the experience, skills and network critical to a rewarding career in public interest advocacy. BPI Fellows have gone on to become the executive director of a non-profit organization that serves youth interests, practice affordable housing law, accept a full-time staff position with BPI and more.
In addition to receiving an invaluable learning opportunity by engaging in BPI's day-to-day work, Fellows receive an annual salary of $46,000 with medical and dental coverage. Debt service on law school or graduate school loans for the duration of the Fellowship may be available, based on need. The duration of the Fellowship term is one year, renewable for a second, beginning in the summer or fall.
