Student Intellectual Life Funding

The Office of Student Affairs is excited to announce the launch of the Intellectual Life Funding (ILF) Application for the 2018-2019 academic year.

The Intellectual Life Funding is made available to all student organizations interested in proposing academic programs that might appeal to law students and serve the needs of our Law School community. Applications are reviewed through a competitive application process with funding decisions made by the Intellectual Life Committee comprised of faculty, administrators and students. The Intellectual Life Funding Committee welcomes applications that propose shorter academic panels, brown bag lunch series, film showings, workshops, round-tables, colloquia and other kinds of events that might appeal to students and serve the needs of our Law School community.

To apply for Intellectual Life funding, student organizations must select a single representative who will submit the completed application via the NYU Law Intellectual Life Funding Application. Please identify your representative here.

The 2018-2019 Intellectual Life application deadline is 11:59 p.m. Thursday, March 29 2018.


Please email if you have any questions.
