Graduate Research Fellows
The Wayne Morse Graduate Research Fellows program supports graduate student research projects related to the theme of inquiry or public policy.

Law Fellowship Program
The Wayne Morse Law Fellowship is for outstanding UO Law students who have demonstrated a commitment to serve the public interest. Fellows are supported through paid summer internships and mentoring.

David Schuman Legal Justice Fellowship
David Schuman, beloved law professor, respected judge, and longtime Wayne Morse Center advisory board member, mentored hundreds of law students and graduates of University of Oregon Law in their public interest law careers. This annual fellowship, which is part of the Center's Law Fellows program, carries forward his legacy. While other fellows focus on legislation and policy, the Schuman Fellow is placed in an organization that seeks justice for vulnerable groups and individuals.
