Fellowship Information

The Public Interest Law Association (PILA) is a UVA School of Law student organization that supports and promotes public interest law.  Through its Student-Funded Fellowships (SFF) program, PILA awards fellowships to students who will work in volunteer or low-paying public interest positions during the summer.  Fellowships are funded through student fundraising efforts, student, faculty, and community donors, the Law School Foundation, the Dean’s Office, and the Law & Public Service Program.

The percentage of applicants receiving grants changes each year due to fluctuations in funds and the number of applicants.  In the past few years, PILA has been able to fund about half of the applicants who applied.
