Volume 134 of the Yale Law Journal is excited to announce a new program dedicated to supporting student scholarship: YLJ Academic Summer Grants.

These grants will provide students with a stipend to work full-time on their own academic projects for two to four weeks at the end of the summer. In addition to receiving a stipend, grantees will participate in YLJ programming designed to foster community and facilitate the exchange of peer feedback. Recognizing that many students struggle to make time for focused writing during law school, we hope these grants will give students the institutional and financial support they need to explore ideas, pursue scholarly projects, and build academic community outside of term time.

Continuing J.D. students at Yale Law School are eligible to apply. Applicants should submit the following via this form by Friday, May 17 at 5 PM ET: (1) a brief personal statement explaining their interest in the proposed project and any relevant personal, professional, or academic background; (2) a proposal describing the academic project that the grant would support; and (3) the name of a faculty sponsor. More information about the application process and program requirements can be found here.

We look forward to supporting our first cohort of YLJ grantees!
