Each year, the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University selects up to five fellows from among students admitted to the entering J.D. class. Fellowships are awarded to students who intend to pursue careers in child and family advocacy. Scholarship awards include a maximum $20,000 tuition scholarship each year over three years of law school and up to two $7,500 summer stipends to cover living expenses while completing a qualifying internship.

Fellowships are awarded for one year but are renewable annually, subject to the guidelines of the Merit Scholarship Program for Incoming Students.
