Civic Internship Grants: Summer 2013
Consistent with the Center’s mission to support students committed to service to others, the Clough Center will provide grants to Boston College undergraduates for what would be otherwise uncompensated part-time or full-time work on behalf of government, non-profit, or other civic organizations during the summer of 2013. Grants will not be awarded for internships engaged in endorsing candidates for political office, or for Political Action Committees.
All recipients of a Civic Internship Grant will become Clough Center Junior Fellows for the 2013-14 academic year. As fellows, they will be expected to attend Junior Fellows Program meetings and events, and will also enjoy members-only events and discussions, providing a unique forum for intellectual discourse.

Fellowship Program for Graduate Students
The Clough Center invites applications from Boston College graduate students conducting research on any aspect of constitutional democracy to participate in its Graduate Fellow Program for the 2013-14 academic year. The Center seeks to appoint Fellows from among graduate students in the Social Sciences (Economics, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology) and the Humanities (Classical Studies, English, History, Philosophy, Theology), as well as the other professional schools.
Clough Public Interest Law Scholars
Consistent with the Center’s mission to support students committed to service to others, the Clough Center will provide grants to Boston College first and second-year law students for uncompensated public interest work, in the United States or abroad, during the summer of 2013.
Clough Public Interest grants cannot be held in conjunction with a Law School PILF grant. However, all positions that qualify for a PILF award through the Law School are eligible for this award with the exception of judicial internships, provided that the position allows the student to explore some relevant aspect of constitutional democracy.
Travel Grants: 2013
The Clough Center will award a limited number of ad hoc grants to faculty, undergraduate, and graduate students during the 2013-14 academic year to enable qualified scholars to travel and undertake work related to the Center’s mission. Such work includes travel for attendance at conferences, research, and other relevant endeavors. The award of travel grants is subject to available financial resources.
