FCBA Foundation Funding of Unpaid Communications-Related Legal Internships
The Federal Communications Bar Association Foundation awards stipends to law students from its Chairman Robert E. Lee Scholarship and Internship Fund. The program provides stipends of up to $5,000 to outstanding law students employed as unpaid summer interns in positions with the FCC and other Federal, state, and local government agencies with a connection to the communications industry (i.e., broadcasting, cable television, telephony, satellite, wireless, and information technology). In 2015, the Foundation awarded stipends ranging from $2,500 to $5,000 to 25 students. One outstanding applicant to both the Stipend and Law School Scholarship program received the annual Max Paglin Award, representing an additional stipend of $600; another outstanding student received the David L. Snyder stipend of $5,000.
