Rudman Center - Fellowships & Scholarships

Warren B. Rudman Fellows Program

The Warren B. Rudman Fellows Program provides full-tuition scholarships, guaranteed summer fellowships, individualized curricular planning, and on- and off-campus leadership opportunities to exceptionally well-qualified applicants with a demonstrated interest in public service following their law school graduation. The first two Warren B. Rudman fellows enrolled in the law school in the fall 2014.

Rudman Summer Fellowships Program

The Rudman Summer Fellowships Program provides $4000 summer stipends to students who work for government agencies or for organizations that perform public interest legal work.  Read about the Summer Fellows and their rewarding educational experiences. At present, the Rudman Center awards at least 20 summer fellowships per year. But as fundraising permits, the Rudman Center aspires to provide summer stipends to all UNH Law students who perform meaningful community service during the course of the preceding academic year. The 2015 Rudman Summer Fellows Application is no longer available.

Bruce E. Friedman Scholarship

The Bruce E. Friedman Scholarship is named for Professor Bruce E. Friedman, who for many years directed the school’s Civil Practice Clinic. First and second year students who have been active in community service and demonstrate a commitment to the provision of legal services to underserved populations may apply for this scholarship.

Loan Repayment Assistance Program

The Loan Repayment Assistance Program is available to graduates who practice law in qualified public interest positions and make less than $55,000 per year. The program annually reimburses a portion of the law school loan repayments made by qualified individuals for up to five years following graduation.
