Description
The purpose of the Roxana C. Arsht Fellowship is to encourage law students, recent law school graduates and attorneys newly admitted to the Bar of the Supreme Court of Delaware to pursue careers in non-profit sectors in Delaware. In an effort to encourage attorneys to work in public interest positions, the Fellowship offers financial assistance for three years to each recipient selected.

Applicants must apply for the Fellowship within three years of law school graduation, and must secure a position with a non-profit organization that provides legal services that benefit the Delaware community, underrepresented groups, or indigent persons in Delaware. An applicant’s annual salary may not exceed $55,000 to be eligible for the Fellowship.

For the year 2015, the Fellowship Committee will accept applications from February 1 through March 1, 2015. A decision will be announced by May 1, 2015 with one award being approved. The amount of the award will vary each year as it is based on the annual interest earned by the Fellowship Fund. Recipients will have two opportunities to pass the Delaware Bar exam, and if necessary, they must sit for the exam in consecutive years to continue their eligibility.
