18th Annual PILA Fellowship Fundraiser

43% of $10,000 goal
This campaign ended on March 21, 2024, but you can still make a gift to The University of Toledo by clicking here!

Toledo Law and the Public Interest Law Association invite you to help students take advantage of career-shaping public interest summer work opportunities.

Your gifts will provide summer fellowship awards that will compensate students who take summer public interest positions that would be unpaid otherwise. Last year we awarded fellowships to 4 out of 16 qualified applicants. Each fellowship was $8,000 for a total of $32,000.

Summer fellows have dedicated themselves to public service in such areas as environmental justice, domestic violence, human trafficking, consumer advocacy, criminal defense, public benefits, family law, and international human rights.

With your help, we hope to raise $10,000. Each year our pool of qualified fellowship applicants exceeds our funding capabilities. An increase in donations will provide additional students with the opportunity to engage in and explore public service work while earning a competitive stipend.

Thank you for your generosity!

9 Days!

There are still 9 days left to make a difference for the Public Interest Law Association!

Please share the campaign with your networks to help expand our reach and further support our students who make an impact every day. Every dollar counts!
