FCBA Foundation 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).

In addition, the Foundation will select one outstanding intern among those chosen to receive an 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 Law School Summer Stipend Program awards stipends from its FCC Chairman Robert Emmet Lee Scholarship and Internship Fund, and provided support to more than 30 outstanding law students for the 2018-2019 academic year. 

Information on how to apply for the 2019 program will be available in December or January.

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 janeen@fcba.org.
