How to Apply

Climenko Fellowship Program

We have completed selections for the 2014-16 term. We will begin considering applications again on September 1, 2014 for the 2015-17 term. The Law School anticipates hiring at least six Climenko Fellows for the 2015-17 term.  Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until November 14.  Interested candidates are encouraged to submit their materials as early as possible after September 1.  

Prospective Climenko Fellows require a J.D. degree and a superior academic record. To apply, submit a cover letter, your resume and law school transcript, two or three letters of recommendation, and one scholarly writing sample.  Either your cover letter or separate research agenda should discuss in detail the research project(s) you intend to undertake as a Climenko Fellow.  Submit materials in hard copy only to:
