Fellowships

The Foundation has three fellowship programs:

Community Leadership in Justice Fellowship
This paid fellowship gives nonprofit leaders a unique professional development opportunity to further their careers and causes by building bridges between community and academia, leaving a lasting access to justice legacy for both.

Public Interest Articling Fellowship
Nonprofit organizations receive funding to host an articling student. Students gain valuable work experience and the community gains an additional resource for help with their legal problems.

Roy & Ria McMurtry Endowment
Coordinated externally to the Foundation, two scholarships are awarded annually to students who are enrolled in courses related to law. Scholarships are given to students who are, have been, or at risk of becoming involved in the criminal justice system and to students enrolled in an Ontario law school who have demonstrated financial need and/or a contribution to the community.
