Public Interest Scholarship Program

American University Washington College of Law (AUWCL) is proud to invest in the next wave of public interest leaders by providing three-year, full-tuition, Public Interest/Service Scholarships (PIPS). AUWCL created the PIPS Program in 2001 to provide financial and programmatic support to students with a clearly demonstrated commitment to public service, strong academic credentials, and an express desire to pursue a public interest or public service career upon graduation.

Cori Alonso-Yoder, PIPS Class of 2011 reflects on what it means to be part of the PIPS community at WCL.
