FCBA Foundation 2019 Law School Summer Internship Stipend Program: Application Now Available

For the 26th consecutive year, the FCBA Foundation will award stipends to law students employed as unpaid summer interns through its Law School Summer Internship Stipend Program.  The program provides stipends to students from around the country who want to dedicate their time and talent over the summer to government service in areas that relate to communications law, including broadcasting, cable, information technology, television, telephony, satellite, and wireless.  It also can include work at agencies and Congressional committees addressing other communications-related areas, including internet law and policy, privacy, cybersecurity, copyright, emerging technologies, and related policy and legal issues.

The Law School Summer Internship Stipend Program awards stipends of up to $5,000 from its FCC Chairman Robert Emmet Lee Scholarship and Internship Fund, and last year provided support to 32 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.  FCBA individual and corporate members generously donate money to the FCBA Foundation to support these stipends.

The application for the stipend is now available and can be accessed at https://webportalapp.com/sp/login/fcbastipend2019The deadline for submission of applications is Sunday, March 24, 2019.
