The Bergstrom Child Welfare Law Summer Fellowship is committed to inspiring the best and brightest law students to pursue careers in child welfare law. Through the fellowship, students gain experience and insight into the field and provide much needed services to various child welfare offices specializing in representing children, parents, and social service agencies. After attending a training session in May at Michigan Law, fellow​s spend at least 10 weeks at a child welfare law internship.

In 1995, the W. K. Kellogg Foundation provided a start-up three-year grant, as a part of the foundation's Families for Kids Initiative, to establish the Summer Child Welfare Law Fellowship through the Child Advocacy Law Clinic at Michigan Law. The Summer Fellowship program training is now funded by a generous gift from the Bergstrom Foundation in honor of the late Henry A. Bergstrom, '35. With the Bergstrom funding, the summer fellowship has gained a national scope.

Selection Criteria

Our selection criteria include evidence of commitment to the field of children's law, past experiences related to children and family, and performance indicative of likely future success in the field. We will give some advantage to students who have arranged their own summer placements and all or part of their summer living stipend. Interested applicants should not be deterred if they have not identified their summer placement or source of summer money, however. Once accepted into the fellowship program, we will assist in placement and the search for funds.

Financial Considerations

For fellows accepted into the program, we will cover each fellow's travel costs to their summer internship, if they are able to report in person. If possible, there will be an expenses paid retreat at the end of summer 2020. Fellows will also receive a stipend to attend a child welfare law conference before December 2021.  

We encourage students to seek out sources of funding, such as from their law school career placement office, public interest groups, or student funded fellowships. Equal Justice America Fellowships may be available. The summer placement may be in a position to provide some support.

Application

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and our inability to gather in-person, we have decided not to have a Bergstrom training this year. We look forward to a robust, in-person experience in 2022. Thanks for your interest in the program.
