Summer Funding Programs

Columbia Law School’s robust summer funding program supports students pursuing meaningful public service employment.

The Office of Public Interest/Public Service Law and Careers (the PI/PS Office) and the Office of Professional Affairs Administration jointly oversee the two largest summer funding programs for law students pursuing public interest and public service work in the nation: Columbia Summer Funding (CSF) and Human Rights Internship Program (HRIP). Together, these programs provide every interested Columbia law student with generous funding to work over the summer in public interest, government and human rights organizations anywhere in the world.
