The University of Massachusetts School of Law - Dartmouth Public Interest Summer Stipend Program has awarded stipends of approximately $3,000 each to selected UMass Law students who will work in full-time internships for non-profit or government organizations at which they will be employed for at least ten weeks during the summer of 2014.
The law school highly values public service and believes that internships are one of the best ways for students to explore public interest law as a possible career path. The stipends will help to defray the students’ costs, bring in matching funds, and honor students who have a strong commitment to public interest law.
