What is the Open Society Foundations (OSF) Fellowship in Nonprofit Law?

The OSF Fellowship in Nonprofit Law permits one Fellow each year to spend a year in residence at the Open Society Foundations Office of the General Counsel, working with the General Counsel and the staff of attorneys on legal issues facing the Foundations. In addition, the Fellow will be deployed to OSF’s various projects and programs to address the legal, business, and organizational issues confronted by these projects and programs. A Fellowship at OSF will provide a recent law school graduate with exposure to an unusually wide variety of legal and organizational issues encountered by private foundations.

Who can be a OSF Fellow?

Each year, one Fellowship is awarded to a recent U.S. law school graduate. Fellows are selected for their scholarship, leadership, and commitment to practicing in the field of nonprofit law. Fellows will be selected without regard to the applicant’s race, color, religion, gender, political beliefs, national origin, disability, age, or sexual orientation.
