ANN ARBOR, Mich.—The awarding this month of the 2011 Fiske Fellowships for Public Service means another trio of Michigan Law graduates has earned a boost in launching promising public service careers.
The three-year fellowships are sponsored by 1955 graduate Robert Fiske, a former Independent Counsel and U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. They're designed to help students entering public service—especially federal public service—pay off their student loans.
This year's fellows include 2009 grads Adrienne Fowler and Mary Hanna-Weir and 2010 grad Kathryn Ladewski. Fowler is working in the Justice Department's Consumer Litigation Section, Hanna-Weir is with the Education Department's Office for Civil Rights, and Ladewski is in the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division.
A special committee appointed by Law School Dean Evan Caminker chooses among the candidates based on their commitment to public service, their academic performance, and the nature and quality of their proposed government positions.
