Wilf Impact Public Interest Scholars Program
The Wilf Impact Public Interest Scholars Program educates and trains a new generation of social justice leaders through substantial renewable, full-tuition scholarships; summer internship funding; and postgraduate fellowships.
Ten students are designated as Wilf Impact Scholars each year, and the students work closely with faculty leaders on the front lines of our nation’s most important civil rights challenges, including immigration rights, racial justice, educational equity, housing rights, and access to justice for children and families. Students also collaborate with external social justice organizations which operate in partnership with New York Law School.
Made possible by a gift from the Wilf Family Foundation, which also established the Wilf Impact Center for Public Interest Law, the Wilf Impact Scholars Program allows NYLS to recruit and retain a cohort of students who bring diversity, talent, and dedication to public interest careers.
