The Skadden Fellowships

The Skadden Fellowship provides two years of funding to work in the public interest, addressing the civil legal needs of people living in poverty in the US. In advance of our application period, our goal is to provide as much helpful information as possible so each applicant can put their best foot forward.

The Foundation remains fully committed to the Fellowship program. We have recently posted the updated application, along with updated FAQs, on our website’s application process page. The Skadden Fellowship application will be due on September 14, 2020.

For additional general information about the Skadden Fellowship, please consider joining one of our virtual information sessions. The dates and times are listed below, and the dates, times, and log-in information are all posted on our website’s application process page. The information sessions will include an update on the Foundation’s funding guidelines for the coming application cycle, including an update that immigration-related projects will be considered as long as the client community is living in poverty and in the US (as is required for all Skadden projects).
