ABA Section of Taxation Public Service Fellowships

The ABA Section of Taxation Public Service Fellowships are open to recent J.D. and LL.M. graduates, and judicial clerks who commit to working in tax-related public interest, non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations for two years.

Applicants must select and arrange employment with those organizations prior to applying for the Fellowship, and must confirm that their work will involve taxation or the administration of tax law. Up to two Fellowships will be awarded each year, and the Section will fund the salary, benefits and law school debt service (when applicable) for each awardee.

The Section is now accepting applications for the 2009 Fellowships. The deadline to apply is October 15, 2008.

The Tax Section encourages its members to participate in pro bono work. The Fellowship program is one more way that the Section can provide a meaningful way for members to give back to their communities. Detailed information, and a downloadable application, is available online.
