Although Harvard Law is dropping its third-year tuition waiver for those entering public interest positions, it has come up with a new way to encourage students to enter the public sector upon graduation: the Public Service Venture Fund.
Each year the Fund will award $1 million in grants as "'seed money' for start-up non-profit ventures and salary support" to help graduating students enter public service; students who wish to work abroad in qualifying organizations or government agencies are also eligible.
"This new fund is inspired by our students' passion for justice," said Harvard Law School Dean Martha Minow. "It's an investment that will pay dividends not only for our students but also for the countless number of people whose lives they will touch during their public service careers."
