Fellowship and Scholarship Giving

Individuals interested in supporting the professional development of tomorrow’s scholars and practitioners in international law can contribute to any of ASIL’s Fellowship and Scholarship Programs.  These programs are funded in part by designated contributions from ASIL members, as well as from the Society’s Annual Giving program.

Arthur C. Helton Fellowship Program – providing "micro-grants" for law students and young professionals to pursue field work and research on significant issues involving international law, human rights, humanitarian affairs, international criminal law, and related areas through overseas internships with non-governmental and international organizations.

ASIL International Law Fellows Program – providing support for young professionals in international law who work with ASIL staff on all aspects of Society publications as well as education and program development initiatives of the Society.
