C-PILO will grant students up to $3,000 for working a minimum of ten (10) forty (40) hour weeks. Students working less than 400 total hours can still receive grants but grants will be prorated based on hours worked.
If students are receiving partial funding from their employers, they can still receive C-PILO money, but the total amount of money from the employer and C-PILO may not exceed $3,000.
Students are permitted to apply for funding from outside sources to create a total of up to $4,000. Outside funding includes student organization grants (ELP, DVAP, etc) and grants from entities outside of UNC Law, aside from the student's employer. Students are required to notify C-PILO President, Zachary Kohn, and Dean Sylvia Novinsky as soon as they receive notice of outside funding (even if not exceeding $4,000). If a student receives outside funding exceeding $4,000, the student will be required to return all money in excess of $4,000 to C-PILO as soon as the outside funding is received in order to provide grant money to other students. If notice of outside funding is received before the student obtains a check from C-PILO, the C-PILO check will be reduced by the amount exceeding $4,000, even if the outside funding has not been physically received.
