Fellowships

Veterans Education Success considers requests to host individuals for fellowships, where the projects align with our areas of expertise in veterans’ higher education issues and the fellow is able to identify their own outside source of funding. This includes current law students from any ABA-accredited law school seeking a postgraduate fellowship that is partially or fully funded by an external source, such as a Skadden fellowship, Equal Justice Works, Justice Catalyst, Soros, or a program funded by your school. In recent years, we have hosted law fellows from Georgetown University and George Washington University who have worked on a mix of legal and policy work.

If you have identified a source of funding for your fellowship and would like to explore placement with us, please contact us at Help@VetsEdSuccess.Org.
