The King Hall Legal Foundation Summer Public Service Fellowships

The King Hall Legal Foundation (KHLF) is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization operated and managed by King Hall students. KHLF will award a limited number of summer public service fellowships to currently enrolled first and second year students to undertake public service legal work that serves underprivileged and underrepresented populations. KHLF does not provide fellowships for prosecutorial work.

Eligibility

To be eligible for the KHLF Fellowships, candidates must:

  • join KHLF as a member; 
  • be a 1L or 2L student at King Hall;
  • volunteer ten hours of solicitation work for the KHLF auction; 
  • volunteer five hours at the KHLF auction itself;
  • and secure an offer to work for an eligible non-profit organization or government agency.  Prosecutorial work is not eligible for KHLF funding.

 Fellowship Award Amount

The amount of each KHLF Summer Fellowship award will be determined based on the availability of funding. In past years, KHLF has been able to award as much as $4,000 to students who did not receive other fellowships, and as much as $2,000 for those who did. All KHLF Fellowship recipients are subject to a maximum cap of $6,000 from all sources.  KHLF may also fund part‐time public interest legal work on a pro‐rated basis.

Example 1:

Anne Smith receives a UC Presidential Summer Public Service Fellowship in the amount of $4,000. She has also performed her auction-related KHLF hours. KHLF gives her a KHLF Fellowship of $2,000. Because money received from KHLF does not count against the UC Presidential Fellowship, Anne’s total summer income will be $6,000.

Example 2:

Alexa Garcia is not selected for a UC Presidential Summer Public Service Fellowship, but she has performed her auction related KHLF hours. KHLF gives Alexa a KHLF Fellowship of $4,000. Her total summer income will be $4,000.

Example 3:

Arnold Parson is not selected for a UC Presidential Summer Public Service Fellowship. He neglects to do any auction-related volunteer work for KHLF. Arnold is ineligible for a KHLF fellowship. His total summer income will be zero.
