PILF Summer Grant Info Sessions

If you plan to work for a public interest employer this summer in an unpaid internship, come learn more about Public Interest Law Foundation (PILF) Summer Grants! You may be eligible for funding ($4,400).

The PILF Summer Grant Program provides funding to Seattle University School of Law students who provide quality legal services to low-income and marginalized communities through unpaid summer jobs at nonprofit or public agencies. The Program is funded through a variety of sources, including individual donors, and law firm and institutional partners, however, the PILF Auction on March 4th is the principal funder.

Two info sessions will take place on March 7, covering eligibility and the application and decision process:
  • Tuesday, March 7, Noon in Room 109
  • Tuesday, March 7, 4 p.m. in Room C7
To apply for a PILF Summer Grant you must have an offer from a public interest employer by the time you submit your application (hardship situations will be considered if you have interviewed with a likely employer by the time you submit your application).

Applications are open now! Download the application materials from PILF’s TWEN site.

The DEADLINE for applications is: 11:59 p.m. Friday, March 24
