Fellowship, Internship and Volunteer Programs

Legal Empowerment Fellowships

Throughout the year, Namati seeks current and recently graduated law and graduate students to join our team as fellows, with potential placements in Sierra Leone, India, Myanmar, Mozambique, and the United States (Washington, DC). We are also open to considering proposals for additional projects and will work with applicants to further develop ideas.

Namati’s Fellowships are part or full-time positions requiring a minimum of 12 weeks’ commitment (we are flexible with start dates).

Please note at this time we are only able to accept applications from individuals whose fellowship will be paid for through independent fellowship funding.  While we do recognize that interested interns/fellows may approach us during the process of actively applying for external sources of funding, due to the high volume of interest in our opportunities we look for our finalists to demonstrate that they can be resourceful and creative in securing funding and will not make excessive requests of our teams for support.

Throughout the year, Namati seeks interns (usually junior or senior-level undergraduate students) to join our team in Washington, D.C. The internships are typically structured as 10-12 week commitments, with hours varying depending on the intern’s schedule. A typical set-up might involve a maximum of 20 hours per week during spring and fall term times, and 40 hours per week during summer. Namati will work with interns and their undergraduate institutions to receive federal work study award remuneration, or provide interns with a small stipend.
