PILO Summer Grants
PILO Grant Application
Every year we use the money we raise at the PILO Auction and other Fundraising Events to award hardworking students summer grants in order to work at unpaid internships in public interest. Our goal is to increase awareness of the exciting opportunities in public interest law and aid these dedicated students in pursuing their interests. There’s no risk to apply! Students can withdraw their grant application if they decide to accept a paid internship offer. Any stipend is intended to defray summer living expenses for room, board, and the like during the public interest internship.

How Did You Use Your Grant?
“I received a PILO grant after my 1L summer, which allowed me to work for the Environmental Division at the North Carolina Attorney General’s office. I worked on criminal appeals, attended depositions, and researched state and federal case law for environmental issues across the state. My time at the Attorney General’s office was invaluable to my early legal education, and PILO helped me afford that opportunity.”
