Eligible 1Ls with public interest summer internships in New York may apply to the Catalyst Public Service Fellowship Program, a program of the New York Bar Foundation. Fellows will receive an additional $500 in summer funding (on top of the $4500 PILC summer funding stipend).
To be eligible, the applicant must work at least 10 weeks (35 hours/week) for a “public service employer,” defined by the New York Bar Foundation as “a New York State prosecutor, a public or not-for-profit agency which provides criminal defense or civil legal services for the indigent and/or representation in juvenile justice or child protective proceedings in New York State courts and the New York State Unified Court System.”
If eligible and interested, please provide: 1) a completed application form (found here); 2) a resume; 3) an unofficial transcript; and 4) a very brief letter or email from your summer employer confirming employment and number of weeks and hours you will be employed.
Please email your application to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 16, 2018. Three Fellows will be selected and notified by April 13, 2018.
