Curt F. Beck Law and Public Service Opportunity Fund


Professor Emeritus Curt Beck, who taught Political Science at the University of Connecticut for many years, recently established a scholarship fund to help prospective law school students who want to experience internships that lack strong financial support.

This opportunity serves to support students working in an unpaid internship focusing on work in a public service, government, or legislative office that provides legal assistance to low income people, children, the elderly, or other persons lacking means to participate fully in the justice system or to seek representation in civil matters.

The application for Summer 2023 will be available in Spring 2023.

The scholarship was awarded for the first time in 2022 to two outstanding UConn students, featured below!
