The Federalist Society is happy to announce that we will once again be awarding approximately five $5,000 stipends to Federal Work-Study eligible students. These stipends will be awarded to 1L and/or 2L students who are working in public interest jobs over the summer. Applications consist of a resume and a cover letter indicating how your summer job will help you advance the mission of the Federalist Society throughout your legal career.
For your benefit, I have included some information on the Federalist Society and a link to their website.
The applications must be sent to Heidi Baguer at email@example.com by 5:00 PM on March 26th. Students must also apply for the Law School Federal Work-Study Program in order to be placed in queue for a Federal Work Study slot.
Please note that the $5,000 stipend you receive from the Federalist Society includes Federal Work-Study funding; they are not separate awards. So recipients of the Federalist Society stipend will receive $3000 in federal work study funds and $2000 in Federalist Society stipend funds for a total award of $5000.
The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order. It is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be. For more information, please visit www.fedsoc.org.
Do not hesitate to contact Justin Stoll, Justin.D.Stoll.firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions regarding the program or the application!
