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: Grants for the Scholars program are intended to support 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. If interested, please make an introductory inquiry to Timothy Midura, TMidura@theBrooksInstitute.org.
2- Emerging Scholars Fellowship: The fellowship for emerging animal law professors is an academic-year fellowship for 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. No further applications are being taken for the 2020-2021 school year. Applications for the 2021-2022 academic year will open June 1, 2021 and will close June 30, 2021.
