Root-Tilden-Kern Public Interest Scholarships at the NYU School of Law
The Root-Tilden-Kern Scholarship is awarded to students who intend to pursue careers in public service. Each year 20 scholars are selected based on three criteria: commitment to public service, academic excellence, and potential for leadership. The scholarship program defines public service broadly to include employment with U.S. or international non-profit organizations, government public policy and legal positions, academia, electoral politics, community developments and law firms whose primary focus is serving the public interest or serving under-represented clients.
Award / Eligibility Details:
In addition to full tuition, scholars participate in a program that nurtures future public service leaders by providing unique educational, mentoring, and networking opportunities. Within the Root-Tilden-Kern program, there are several named scholarships focusing on specific issues. Students receiving those scholarships participate in all Root-Tilden-Kern activities and are chosen in the same selection process.
