Support for Fellows

Salary

Equal Justice Works will provide each host organization with up to $50,000 annually toward a Fellow's salary. Each host organization is required to set its Fellow's salary commensurate with what a standard entry-level attorney with similar experience would receive at that organization.

 

Fellowships Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP)

Equal Justice Works provides loan repayment assistance to Fellows who qualify through its Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP). The amount of assistance a fellow will receive is based upon the monthly Income Based Repayment (IBR) set forth by the Federal Direct Loan Program. All new fellow LRAP participants must consolidate their federal loans with the Federal Direct Loan Program (www.loanconsolidation.ed.gov) and select IBR as the repayment option on the Federal application.

Development Training

The Equal Justice Works Fellowship program sponsors trainings over the course of the two-year Fellowship to provide Fellows with practical leadership, management, and networking skills that will help them be successful in their Fellowships and throughout their careers.

 

Resources and Services Provided to the Fellows

Equal Justice Works provides Fellows with program support and assistance by offering informative webinars, check-ins, and the help of dedicated staff members who are ready and willing to help you navigate your Fellowship. Equal Justice Works also facilitates and manages the relationship between a Fellow and his/her sponsor.
