Student Funded Fellowships


Student Funded Fellowships (SFF) is a proud Michigan Law tradition dating back to 1977. Over the past 30 years SFF has provided millions of dollars in grants to hundreds of public interest students. This student-run program provides guaranteed summer funding to all first-year law students by:

1) Awarding competitive grants in the amount of $6000 to 1Ls focused on careers in public service. In 2016, SFF provided 24 of these grants. 

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