SPIF-SC conducts fundraisers throughout the year to raise money to supplement SPIF funding. The amount of the supplement depends on the amount of money participating students raise. In order to receive the SPIF-SC supplement, students must make a substantial contribution to organize one of the fundraisers. A student must volunteer for one of the fundraisers to receive the increased award (AND receiving SPIF funds) based on SPIF-SC's policy. SPIF-SC will send out information regarding the fundraising throughout the academic year.
Please note that you may only receive a total of 12 weeks of funding from the Law School for SPIF, Schell, Linkages or other Law School programs. Students who split the summer between a public interest organization and a private law firm, generally are not eligible for SPIF funding because the earnings will be more than the $6,000 maximum allowed summer budget.
