Daniel J. Curtin Jr. Fellowship for Land Use and Planning

First and second year law students are invited to apply for the Daniel J. Curtin Jr. Fellowship.

The Daniel J. Curtin Jr. Fellowship is a great opportunity for students to learn about the diverse legal issues that affect the planning profession and to work with the planners and legal professionals who are involved in these areas on a day-to-day basis.  The legal issues underlying the planning of our cities and communities are an important and essential component in the education and training of those who would become professional planners and land use practitioners. The purpose of the Fellowship Program is to foster increased interest in the study of land use planning and its interrelationship with the law at the advanced undergraduate, graduate, and law school levels.

The Program is open to third and fourth year undergraduate students, first and second year master’s degree students, and first and second year law students.  One fellowship with a stipend of $4,000.00 will be awarded.  The term of the fellowship is approximately ten months (the typical length of two semesters or three quarters).

Interested students may obtain more information as well as the application on the CDO Student Portal under the Scholarships and Fellowships folder.

Application package must be received by PLD no later than October 4, 2010.
