Deadline to apply for the 2018 Fellowship is October 13, 2017
Each fall, BPI hires a recent law or policy school graduate to become a Polikoff-Gautreaux Fellow for a two-year term, beginning the following fall. BPI created the Polikoff-Gautreaux Fellowship in 1999 to honor Alexander Polikoff, who served as BPI’s Executive Director for 29 years, and Dorothy Gautreaux, the public housing activist who gave her name to Polikoff’s landmark lawsuit.
BPI’s fellowship program is designed to prepare the next generation of public interest professionals. Our Fellows have gone on to pursue successful careers in nonprofit leadership, affordable housing law, legal aid, civil rights advocacy, and government.
Requirements of the Fellowship are:
Fellows receive an annual salary of $52,000 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.
To apply, send resume, writing sample, references and a cover letter detailing interest in the position by Friday, October 13, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org, or via postal mail (postmarked by October 13, 2017) to:
