Information Justice Fellowship

Each year, American University’s top tier LL.M in Intellectual Property awards a select number of Information Justice Fellowships.

The Information Justice Fellowship provides a 50% tuition scholarship, research or practical skills internship and faculty mentor for a small group of outstanding applicants to the LL.M in IP in one or more of the following categories:

  • Current government or intergovernmental officials who will return to public service;

  • Students with a clearly demonstrated commitment to public interest or government work after graduation;

  • Students with a research focus and a defined project to pursue while at AUWCL;

  • Applicants from developing countries or diverse or disadvantaged backgrounds.   


To apply, students must apply to the LL.M in Intellectual Property and indicate their interest in applying to the Fellowship in their personal statement. Their statement should explain how they meet one or more of the categories of the fellowship for which they qualify and explain in detail their plans for the LL.M., including goals for their coursework, research and practical skills training at AUWCL, and career goals after graduation.
