The Bobbe and Jonathan Bridge Child Welfare Summer Fellowship provides summer funding to Michigan law students pursuing careers in child welfare law. The fellowship will be adjusted annually, with the inaugural 2017 fellowship in the amount of $2,500 awarded to two Michigan Law students working in the field of child welfare law during the summer between the 2nd and 3rd years of law school.
The fellowship will be awarded to students committed to pursuing careers in child welfare law either through the Law School's Child Advocacy Law Clinic or with a partner agency or organization. Preference will be given to students who are interested in practicing law in the state of Washington. The Bobbe and Jonathan Bridge Child Welfare Summer Fellowship is made possible by a gift from Bobbe and Jonathan Bridge.
