The Law School | December 23, 2015
Notre Dame Law School, in conjunction with the Bank of America Foundation, has named two 2015 NDLS graduates as the inaugural recipients of a newly announced public service fellowship. The Bank of America Foundation Community Sustainability Fellowship, which began this fall, places NDLS graduates in city agencies or private nonprofits for a two-year term.
“I am grateful to the Bank of America Foundation for making this fellowship possible and I am very proud of Jason and Rachel as well,” Dean Nell Jessup Newton said. “Being named a Bank of America Foundation Fellow is a significant achievement, and I look forward to great things from both of our inaugural fellows.”
The first fellow, Jason Sethen, ’15 J.D., is working at the Chicago Low Income Housing Trust Fund. The Trust Fund directly assists individuals and families to achieve safe and secure housing through rent subsidies, and multi-year affordability through an up-front investment program that allows landlords to reduce their rental charges.
