Event description

Description

Join current students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members on a 5K Race/Fun-Run through Villanova's campus. All proceeds from the run will go towards raising money fro 2018 PIFP Summer Fellowships. The Walter A. Lucas Public Interest Fellowship Program at Villanova Law School provides funding for law students working in unpaid public interest positions during the summer. This year, there will be prizes awarded based on best group costume, best individual costume, and fastest runners.

The Walter Lucas Public Interest Fellowship Program (PIFP) at Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law provides financial support to students who commit their summers to public service legal work. Many law students, dedicated to helping the less fortunate, are limited by financial constraints. Similarly, public interest legal organizations often cannot afford to hire much needed summer interns. Through fundraising, PIFP, an entirely student-run organization, provides summer fellowships to Villanova Law students, who in turn aid the larger community by working with various public interest organizations throughout the region, nation and world to deliver volunteer legal services to those in need.

Since its founding in 1998, PIFP has raised over $800,000 through a variety of creative fundraising endeavors and awarded over 170 summer fellowships (each now valued at $4,500). In addition, 2015 marked the tenth consecutive year that PIFP provided $12,000 to fund its Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP). LRAP provides a $12,000 award, paid over three years, to a recent graduate committed to working for a public interest organization or governmental agency.
