The AWA Foundation Pro Bono Fellowship Program is a full-time paid attorney position with one of the AWAF’s Fellowship partners, the Houston Volunteer Lawyers and Tahirih Justice Center. Each organization will interview and select one fellow from the AWAF 2022 3L scholarship applicants who indicate an interest in dedicating their first year of practice to pro bono service.
