Resilience Justice Fellowships and Public Service Internships
The Resilience Justice Project usually offers two to five funded Resilience Justice Fellows per year to students to work together as a team on the Resilience Justice Project, including research, writing, community engagement and policy and governance reforms. The students selected typically have interdisciplinary skills and a strong passion for social and environmental justice, and students may be expected to be taking coursework that already introduces them to the concepts and methods of resilience justice. The availability of fellowships depends on funding, and the term is typically one year. Funds for the Resilience Justice Fellowships are generously provided by Professor Arnold’s Boehl Chair endowment, annual gifts by donors and grant funding.
In addition, the Resilience Justice Project typically accepts approximately three students per year for short-term pro bono internships to work on specific projects, often over Winter Break, for hours towards the Law School’s Public Service graduation requirement.
Students who work on the Resilience Justice Project usually have the benefits of being co-authors of published research; engaging in research, analyses and reform efforts that make differences in low-income communities of color; learning about resilience justice and the complexities of systemic injustice; and working in a team, with mentoring from Professor Arnold.
