The David S. Brown International Fellows Program provides financial support for students of the University of Maryland School of Law engaged in eligible foreign public interest service and externship programs. The amount of the stipend for Brown International Fellows is limited and will be determined based on the available funds and the number of selected students. The stipend may be used by selected students to partially support the reasonable cost of transportation (round-trip coach airfare from Baltimore to the host country) and to partially support reasonable lodging expenses in the foreign country. The recipients will be required to submit a budget and proof of expenses.
The Program is limited to students who have been accepted for participation in the following foreign public interest externship programs:
All University of Maryland law students who will have completed one year of study at the time of the program, have been accepted into one of the above programs, and are in good standing may apply for the David S. Brown International Fellows Program. Students interested in participating in the Fellows Program must submit the following documents to the program liaison, Crystal Edwards (Suite 280):
Students are strongly encouraged to submit applications well in advance of their program deadline (typically no later than April for fall semester and summer externships, and November for spring semester externships).
Each fall and spring, the Law School Committee responsible for foreign program selections will make the selection(s) of the David S. Brown International Fellows. The Committee will exercise its discretion to recommend the overall best academic and ambassadorial representatives of the School of Law based upon each applicant’s academic and other record at the law school, and any information from the faculty reference.
Following completion of their foreign public service program, Brown International Fellows are required to prepare and present a report summarizing their experience. Each year, these reports will be collected and published as the Annual Report of the David S. Brown International Fellows Program. They shall also participate in other activities as requested by the Dean to support the future development of the David S. Brown International Fellows Program and the International and Comparative Law Program at the School of Law.
