Summer Public Interest Funding

Because most government and non-profit agencies cannot pay summer interns, Student Financial Services provides Summer Public Interest Funding (SPIF) for students who choose to work in unpaid/underpaid public interest jobs during the summers after their 1L and/or 2L years. You do not have to be a financial aid recipient to receive funding, although financial need is a factor in determining the source and amount of summer funding awarded. Through the SPIF program we make it possible for all HLS students to consider public service summer employment.

Please review the SPIF section of our website for more detailed program information.
