Back to Grant Programs

The Foundation provides matching grants for fellowships through Washington, D.C.-based Equal Justice Works (EJW). Fellows are hosted by Foundation grantees. Fellows’ two-year civil legal aid projects provide impoverished groups with the representation and implementation needed to make progress in their communities.

Equal Justice Works is a nonprofit organization that uses a network of lawyers, law students, legal service organizations and supporters to ensure public service and equal justice in America. Having invested more than $4 million in 80+ Fellowships since 1999, The Florida Bar Foundation is one of the largest funders of the Equal Justice Works Fellowship program.
