The University of Baltimore Students for Public Interest (UBSPI) is pleased to announce the recipients of this year's public interest grants, each who will receive $4,000 for their work at public interest organizations this upcoming summer.
Funding for these grants is made possible by the money raised at UBSPI's annual public interest auction which was held on March 9, as well as generous support from the University of Baltimore School of Law and the Maryland Legal Services Corporation. Please join me in congratulating this year's dedicated group of students who will intern at a variety of different organizations and offices supporting the public interest.
