The John M. Olin Fellows in Law program has a deadline of March 15 for applications for the three fellowships offered for aspiring academics. The website for the program (here) has the following description:
The John M. Olin Fellows in Law program will offer top young legal thinkers the opportunity to spend a year writing and developing their scholarship with the goal of entering the legal academy. Up to three fellowships will be offered for the 2005-2006 academic year.
A distinguished group of academics will select the Fellows. Criteria include:
- Dedication to teaching and scholarship
- A J.D. and extremely strong academic qualifications (such as significant clerkship or law review experience)
- Commitment to the rule of law and intellectual diversity in legal academia
- The promise of a distinguished career as a legal scholar and teacher
Stipends will include $50,000 plus benefits. While details will be worked out with the specific host school for the Fellow, in general the Fellow will be provided with an office and will be included in the life of the school.
