74% of Stevens Fellows go on to work in public interest and social justice positions. They are public defenders and civil rights attorneys. They advocate for children, youth, survivors of violence, families, immigrants, seniors, and others. They work in local, state, and federal government on housing, health care, child welfare, community services, and racial justice.
All donations in December 2022 will be matched by the Foundation’s Board of Directors. The Board will contribute $1,000 for every donation by new donors – regardless of the amount – and will match all other donations dollar-for-dollar.
Your kind gift this year-end will support next year’s cohort of Stevens Fellows – thank you!
You can help fund the 2023 Stevens Fellows. All donations before New Year’s Eve will be doubled by a matching gift challenge.
“The Justice John Paul Stevens Public Interest Fellowship allowed me to spend my first summer at Berkeley Law serving as an intern with the Office of the President of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). It would be difficult to overstate how important this opportunity was for my professional development and my personal interests.
“After graduation and a year working in Sierra Leone, I returned to the ICTY to serve as a legal officer in the Appeals Chamber, where I supported judges in the drafting of judgements in war crimes cases involving senior Serbian and Croatian political and military officials.
“After my work with the ICTY, I transferred to the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo, where I monitored, reported on, and facilitated rule of law issues. My career with the United Nations was, undoubtedly, facilitated by the opportunity provided through my initial internship with the ICTY.
“Thank you to all supporters of the Stevens Fellowship Program.”
2007 Stevens Fellow and currently a Senior Legal Adviser for the OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities in The Hague, Netherlands
