Chayes International Public Service Fellowship applications are due by 5:00 pm on Monday, February 1. In addition to submitting an application, interested students must contact the Chayes Fellowship Program by January 29 at (617) 384-5284 or ils at law.harvard.edu to schedule an interview that will occur February 5, 8 or 9.
The Chayes Fellowships provide HLS students with the opportunity to spend 8 weeks engaged in international public service within governments of developing nations and those making difficult transitions to peace, stability and democracy, as well as the inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations that support these efforts. The exact nature of the Chayes Fellowsâ€™ projects may vary, but could include work in the areas of constitutional and legal issues in emerging democracies, reconstruction of war-torn societies, or development of legal, political, social and economic institutions, among others. Chayes Fellows become part of a global network of academics and practitioners and are invited to attend periodic meetings at Harvard with prominent international guest speakers.
The Chayes Fellowship program is co-administered by the Bernard Koteen Office of Public Interest Advising, and International Legal Studies. The Fellowship provides a stipend to supplement the amount provided by Summer Public Interest Funding.
