QLaw Foundation has temporarily suspended the Sher Kung Fellowship for summer 2020. We are so happy to have been able to fund law student summer work for so many years and begin to close the gap for law students from marginalized backgrounds. We remain deeply proud of our Summer Fellows and the work we have all been able to achieve together.
Instead of funding a Sher Kung Summer Fellow this year, we will for the first time ever be able to direct funds toward hiring our own summer intern. 2019 has been a year of fantastic growth for our organization, including expansion of our LGBTQ+ Legal Clinic services, increased public outreach, and year-round partnerships with LGBTQ+ community organizations and cross-community coalition work. We are still exploring our new role and how we can best serve Washington’s LGBTQ+ communities, and anticipate that as we grow, we will be able to resume the Sher Kung Fellowship in summer 2021.
Please check back here in fall 2020 for updates about the 2021 application process, and follow us on social media for internship, volunteer, and job postings as well as updates about our work!
