Harvard law school to offer $1 million to bolster public service ranks

In another attempt to help graduate students pursue public service careers, the Harvard Law School announced a plan to offer $1 million in seed money annually to students who start work for existing nonprofit groups and government agencies, The Chronicle of Higher Education reported.

The Public Service Venture Fund will begin distributing money this year to students who take jobs in the U.S. and abroad. The move comes just months after the school discontinued its free third-year tuition for students who agreed to spend five years in the public sector following graduation, the Chronicle reported.
