Chayes International Public Service Fellowship: Upcoming Deadline

Chayes International Public Service Fellowship applications are due by 5:00 pm on Tuesday, February 1.  In addition to submitting an application, interested students must contact the Chayes Fellowship Program by January 28 at (617) 384-5284 or  ils at law.harvard.edu to schedule an interview that will occur February 8, 9, 10, or 11. 

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 Fellows’ 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.
