Support Us

Thank you for joining the Public Interest Project (PIP) at Boston University School of Law in our mission to fund summer grants for students working in public interest.

PIP provides PIP Grants to BU Law students who accept unpaid summer positions at non-profit, public interest, or government organizations. While our grants help fulfill an important need for legal services in Boston and beyond, they also equip students to become better attorneys by allowing them to gain valuable public interest legal experience.

Each $5000 raised funds one summer grant, which represents approximately 400 hours of legal services.
