Other Fellowships

In addition to Polikoff-Gautreaux Fellows, BPI also periodically hosts other post-graduate law fellows including but not limited to Skadden and Equal Justice Works fellows.

Skadden Fellowships are two-year fellowships funded by the Skadden Foundation. Skadden requires that candidates develop projects with host organizations and must secure a potential position with their sponsoring organization before applying for the Fellowship.  The deadline is in September of each year.  BPI will support only one Skadden application per year, so it is best to contact us to discuss hosting as early as possible and before August 1st.  Applicants whose projects are considered for hosting must also apply online.

BPI also sponsors applicants for Equal Justice Works or other post-graduate public interest fellowships.  For more information on Equal Justice Works.

How to Apply

Candidates interested in being hosted by BPI for a fellowship, should submit an information packet for consideration.  Please send one PDF file including a resume, academic transcript, writing sample, and cover letter demonstrating interest in BPI and its programs to fellowships@bpichicago.org, with the subject line “Post-Graduate Fellowship Opportunities.”  For more information about post-graduate fellowship opportunities at BPI, contact fellowships@bpichicago.org with inquiries.

BPI is an equal opportunity employer. We value a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture.  We strongly encourage applications from women, people of color, immigrants, persons with disabilities, members of the LGBTQ community, people with lived experience of poverty, and people from other underrepresented and historically marginalized groups.
