We are seeking students to co-chair one of SPIN’s three major philanthropic programs: Post-Graduate Student-Funded Fellowship, L-STAR and One Day’s Work.
The Post-Graduate Student-Funded Fellowship is a newly launched fellowship that aims to support the public interest work of HLS graduates with funds raised entirely from donations by students, and in the process, to foster a greater sense of community and philanthropy on campus.
L-STAR (Law Student Travel and Accommodations Reimbursement Program) is a national fund-raising initiative that runs in conjunction with law school on-campus interviewing programs. If a law student stays with family or friends instead of in a hotel during a callback interview, the interviewing law firm(s) agrees to donate the funds saved to SPIF or other HLS public interest funding organizations.
One Day’s Work seeks to promote a culture of giving by increasing charitable contributions among young professionals. HLS students as well as our peers at other schools across the country are asked to commit to donating the equivalent of One Day’s Work to a charitable cause that interests them, including, but not limited to, the student public interest funding on campus. The program makes every effort to assure the dependability and fiscal responsibility of all the charities with which it associates so that the money is efficiently and effectively employed.
Interested applicants should send a resume and a brief statement of interest (indicating the position(s) they are interested in) to Deeona Gaskin at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 25, 2011.
