CPILO is dedicated to aiding Carolina Law students in financing public interest summer employment. By fundraising throughout the year, CPILO is able to distribute fellowships to first and second-year students.

Any Carolina Law student who has accepted a public interest summer job can apply in the Fall (2Ls) or Spring (1Ls) for consideration.

Applications are judged on the following criteria:

  1. involvement with other public interest/public service work
  2. financial need
  3. quality of the essay.

Applications are reviewed by a committee consisting of the Director of Public Interest Advising, the Director of Pro Bono Initiatives, one faculty member and one other staff member. Grants are awarded out along with other school and private funds which are solely dedicated for public interest summer grants. For more detailed information on the application process visit my carolina law.To learn more about where UNC students go for the summer visit the experience comments page on MCL.

CPILO's grant policy is available. Grantees are responsible for knowing and following this policy.
