FCBA Foundation 2018 Law School Summer Stipend Program: Application Now Available
For the 25th consecutive year, the FCBA Foundation will award stipends to law students through its Law School Summer Stipend Program. 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, information technology, television, telephony, satellite, and wireless).
The Law School Summer Stipend Program awards stipends from its FCC Chairman Robert Emmet Lee Scholarship and Internship Fund, and last year provided support to nearly 20 outstanding law students. In addition, the Foundation will select one outstanding intern among those chosen to receive and additional stipend for the summer: The Max Paglin Award. The Foundation considers funding from other sources in making award decisions and generally will adjust its stipend awards so that a recipient’s total funding for the internship will not exceed $7,000.
The application for the stipend is now available and can be accessed at https://webportalapp.com/sp/login/fcbastipend. The deadline for submission of applications is Saturday, March 31, 2018. If you have any questions about the Foundation Law School Summer Internship Stipend program or application, please contact the FCBA offices at 202-293-4000 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
