The mission of the Peggy Browning Fund (PBF) is to empower the next generation of workplace justice advocates. Through fellowships, workers’ rights conferences, networking, and other programs, they provide unique opportunities for law students to work for economic and social justice. Since their first Summer Fellowship Program in 1998, the prestige of a Peggy Browning Fellowship has become widely recognized.
PBF’s core program is the Summer Fellowships, which provide funded ten-week summer fellowships to law students across the United States. Peggy Browning Fellows work in a wide variety of social justice organizations, including unions, workplace justice non-profits, and union-side law firms. Last year, the Summer Fellowship Program placed 104 law students at over 75 different organizations.
The 2023 PBF Summer Fellowship Program application cycle is open, with offers starting on a rolling basis on December 10th. Applications for the 2023 cycle close January 13th, 2023. New opportunities will be added throughout December and January, so applicants are encouraged to check the website for updates. Further information about the program or the application process can be found on the PBF website.
