Student Fellowship Program
The Institute sponsors a unique fellowship for students at the law school. The goal of the Fellowships is to create a group of students (and faculty) with interest in antitrust law. Outstanding incoming first-year students will be selected as well as students in the top third of their class after their first year.
The Fellowship is limited to students with demonstrated interest or experience in antitrust and related fields, such as consumer protection, regulated industries or political economy.
There is no formal application form; however interested students are asked to submit a cover letter, transcript, resume and personal statement of 500 words or less describing their interest and qualifications. Submitting one or two letters of recommendation is optional. Finalists will have a short interview. Applications for entering students are due on or before April1 and on or before October 1 for currently enrolled students.
Fellows are required to:
- Maintain his or her standing in the top third of the class
- Enroll in Antitrust and Consumer Protection when these courses are offered
- Participate in either an antitrust seminar or independent study supervised by a faculty member
- Attend all events of the Institute, consistent with class and work schedules.
The student's permanent record will reflect status as a "Student Fellow of the Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies." Fellows will receive an annual stipend of at least $3500.00 in addition to any financial aid.
All Loyola law students are eligible to apply for Summer Grants underwritten by the Institute to promote public interest/public sector work in antitrust and consumer protection. The Institute will provide as much assistance as possible (but not a guarantee) for summer and permanent jobs through contacts at law firms, agencies, public interest organizations and think tanks.
