The Bussian Fellowship for International Law and Dispute Resolution is awarded annually to up to three Colorado Law students (including graduating 3Ls and LLM students) to enable them to pursue summer opportunities in the fields of international law and dispute resolution (including judicial settlement, arbitration, negotiation, mediation, conciliation, conflict resolution, and peace studies). Fellowship amounts vary and are awarded through a competitive selection process based on academic achievement, demonstrated interest in the field, and financial need.
Students may use the funding for program costs, travel, and living expenses to pursue summer opportunities (including internships, externships, academic study abroad programs, and employment opportunities) in dispute resolution with a global, international, or foreign focus. Fellows are required to submit a report detailing their summer experience by September 15.
The Bussian Fellowship is made possible by a generous gift from Colorado Law alumnus Robert Bussian.
