In recent years, ICLC has successfully sponsored Skadden, AmeriCorps, and Equal Justice Works fellowship candidates with projects related to our core practice areas. ICLC enthusiastically encourages the proposal of projects that combine litigation or advocacy with community outreach, public education, and other needed services related to housing and homelessness.

Individuals interested in receiving ICLC sponsorship for their fellowship application should send a letter of interest describing potential projects, a resume, a transcript, three references, and a writing sample via email to Vidhya Ragunathan, Director of Pro Bono, at: vragunathan@innercitylaw.org. Subject line: ICLC Sponsored Fellowship.

Fellowship candidates should:

  • Have strong writing, research, and analytical skills;
  • Be self-motivated and able to manage a variety of tasks;
  • Have strong academic performance;
  • Have a established knowledge of, or interest in, the proposed practice area;
  • Be bright, passionate, and a hardworking team player; and
  • Be committed to ICLC’s clients, mission, and values.

Applicants may apply to multiple projects within ICLC, but must only submit one application per project. Fellowship sponsorship inquiries are accepted on a rolling basis each year until August 1. 

ICLC staff work closely with selected candidates to develop their final fellowship proposal.
