In memory of his grandparents Charles and Louise O'Brien, Father Raymond O'Brien created this summer fellowship to encourage students to interrelate their religious perspective with the practice of law. CUA students completing their first, second, or third year of law school AND will be enrolled at CUA for the Fall semester are eligible to apply for summer grants in conjunction with their work at a pro bono assignment during the summer. Applications will be available in late February and are typically due the last week in March.

Weissman Memorial Scholarship offer summer stipends to CUA law students to encourage and support the placement and training of legal careers in public interest law.

In honor of founding partner James R. Patton, Jr., Patton Boggs, LLP established the Patton Boggs Foundation to annually grant a Public Policy Fellowship to an exceptional CUA law student. A $5,000 fellowship is available to a student spending their summer working on public policy matters for a non-profit institution or a government agency.
