The Public Interest Internship Program Committee of the Young Lawyers Division is pleased to announce that applications for 2013 funding are now available.
Law students and recent law school graduates may apply for limited $5,000 grants to fund unpaid full-time summer internships in public interest law. We hope this will help expand the number of students and young lawyers able to pursue opportunities in public interest law. Applicants must have secured an unpaid internship in a law-related non-profit or government agency. Applications are due no later than April 1, 2013, at 5 p.m. Students will be notified of grant awards by May 1 and funds will be disbursed by June 30.
Eligible internships must involve a commitment equivalent to ten (10) full-time weeks of work.
