Please attach an original research proposal of not more than 1,000 words on a legal topic of scholarly interest.
The proposal should indicate which of the four sponsoring
offices would be the appropriate venue to conduct your research. We will evaluate
your proposal as indicative of your professional interests and your potential for
producing useful scholarship during the fellowship. Although the topic you choose
should reflect your primary interests, it will not determine your placement among
the four offices or prevent you from being considered by all four of the sponsoring
offices. Your Proposal MUST be in either PDF or Microsoft Word format.
