Each year, the Children's Justice Project (CJP) awards fellowships to students up to $5,000 for ten to twelve weeks of summer legal work that benefits children. CJP fellows must work for an organization or agency that is unable to pay a salary to summer interns. Students working for government agencies with a focus on children are eligible for an award. To apply for a fellowship, please complete the application now available in Career Services, and attach a current resume and a letter from your employer verifying that you will work for at least ten weeks during the summer of 2007. Completed applications are due Monday March 19th by 4 p.m. The selection committee will schedule interviews with selected applicants shortly after spring break. If you have any questions about the application process, please email Nidhi Kashyap at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sara Vanden Brook at email@example.com or Amber Hahn at firstname.lastname@example.org. All recipients of a CJP fellowship will be required to prepare, upon receipt of the award and after the recipients summer work is concluded, letters to the donor that has made this program possible as well as the CJP Advisory Board. These letters should describe the organization where the recipient will be working, the type of work the recipient will be doing, and a summary of the recipients experience. Additional details will be provided to recipients regarding this requirement.
