View Contact / News /Washington DC

The Squire Patton Boggs Foundation is proud to announce its 2022 Public Policy Fellows, welcoming 21 deserving law students into the program.

The Public Policy Fellowship Program is the cornerstone of the Foundation. Since launching in 2005 the Fellowship Program awards annual summer fellowships to exceptional first- and second-year law students who demonstrate a steadfast commitment to public service and a developed interest in public policy.

These law students commit their summers to advancing public policy issues through non-profit institutions, government agencies and domestic or international organizations. Assignment locations of Fellowships ranges from Warsaw to San Francisco to Maine, with a significant number in Texas, Colorado, Ohio and Washington, D.C.

John Oberdorfer, Foundation President said, “This Fellowship provides worthwhile opportunities for students seeking to engage in public interest work during their law school summers. I couldn’t be more proud of the participating organizations and the group of Fellows we’ve selected for 2022. Their unwavering commitments to public service will make a huge difference and I look forward to hearing about the impact each will be making at their respective organizations.”

The Public Policy Fellowship Program runs in tandem with the Sustained Impact Fellowship Program. The Sustained Impact Fellowship includes two fellows who were selected for the 2022 Puerto Rico Disaster Response Fellowship and three fellows who were selected for the 2022 Racial Justice Fellowship Program. Additionally this is the inaugural year for the Foundation’s Veterans Justice Sustained Impact Fellowship, where one fellow is placed with Swords to Plowshares in San Francisco..
