Student Funded Fellowships

Student Funded Fellowships (SFF) is a proud Michigan Law tradition dating back to 1977. This student-run program provides guaranteed summer funding to all first-year law students by:

1. Awarding competitive grants in the amount of $6,000 to 1Ls focused on careers in public service.  In 2018, SFF provided 24 of these grants.

2. Providing interest-free loans in the amount of $4000 to all 1Ls (except those who receive an SFF grant or other Michigan Law funding for the summer).
