Dale Minami Public Interest Fellowship

The Dale Minami Public Interest Fellowship was created in 2007 to provide modest fellowship awards to Berkeley Law (Boalt Hall) alumni who have shown a strong commitment to serving the public interest. Minami Fellows are selected for their diverse backgrounds, record of exceptional academic and professional accomplishment, leadership in community service, and commitment to social justice and public interest work. The award can be used to supplement annual income or used toward bar exam preparation expenses. Priority will be given to applicants who have worked with the Asian American Pacific Islander community. Individuals working in any range of public interest jobs, including government work, are invited to apply.
