Lewis & Clark Receives $3.7 Million for Environmental Fellowships
A $3.7 million bequest from Washington environmental advocate John E. Diehl will endow postgraduate fellowships supporting Lewis & Clark Law School alumni who practice environmental law in the public interest. The Diehl bequest is the second largest single gift ever made to the law school.
The Diehl Fellowship stipends will supplement income from environmental nonprofit organizations for recent graduates. Preference will be given to those whose work is dedicated to resource conservation, wilderness and wildlife habitat and preservation, or human population stabilization.
In addition, the law school will match the bequest with Diehl Scholarships to support students who have a stated interest in practicing public interest environmental law.
