If you missed the 20th PILG Auction in November, you have another opportunity to support the PILG Endowment. Stop by Cosi in West Hartford on December 13 between 5 and 9 pm and a portion of the proceeds from the evening will go toward the PILG Endowment.
The PILG Endowment, held at the University of Connecticut School of Law Foundation, funds fellowships for students working in uncompensated summer public interest positions. For the last twenty years, more than two hundred students have been awarded fellowships to pursue a wide variety of public interest endeavors nationally and internationally. Last year, fourteen students received fellowships serving in Georgia, Washington, DC, Illinois, New York, Massachusetts and, of course, in our home state of Connecticut.
