The Brooks Institute will consider applications for academic fellowships that have direct impact on animal law and policy in accordance with the Brooks Institute mission.

There are presently two fellowship programs:

1- Scholars Research Fellowship: The goal of the research grants program is to support outstanding research that will advance the fields of animal law and policy. To be eligible for grants, principal investigators must be affiliated with an accredited academic institution or demonstrate a record of successful independent research. In addition to full-time faculty, graduate students and independent researchers are invited to apply. Applications are reviewed two times per year beginning after June 1 and December 1 (with submission deadlines of May 31 and November 30, respectively). The application for the June 2021 review period may be found here.

2- Emerging Scholar Fellowship: The fellowship for emerging animal law professors is an academic-year fellowship for 2L and 3L law students who are interested in pursuing a career in law teaching and who seek mentorship and an opportunity to develop a scholarly agenda in the field of animal law. The goal of the fellowship is to increase the number of well-qualified persons who intend to pursue a faculty appointment in a United States law school and intend to make animal law a significant component of their teaching and research. The deadline to apply for the 2021-2022 fellowship is June 30, 2021. The application may be found here.
