Jones Day announces the commencement of its Jones Day International Legal Fellowship for the 2020-2021 academic year. This marks the 20th consecutive year that Jones Day will award scholarship to students to encourage the study of law in China.

The 2021 Fellowship awards will be given to law students from universities in China. Each winner will receive RMB30,000. Jones Day grants these Fellowships in the hope that each recipient will use the money to support their education and experience in whichever legal area they choose to pursue.
