2016 NAPABA Law Foundation Summer Public Interest Internship Grant
Deadline: January 15, 2016
Goal: The NLF Public Interest Internship is to provide support for one law student to gain meaningful legal experience during a 2016 summer internship at a public interest organization that provides direct legal services, impact litigation, and/or legal advocacy on behalf of the Asian and Pacific Islander American (APIA) community.
- Public interest organizations are to provide NLF with a legal intern summer project proposal.
- NLF will select a host organization from these submissions. Host organization awardee is permitted and encouraged to advertise the internship opportunity in its recruitment.
- In April, the selected host organization will provide a list of summer legal interns (hired or tentative) for consideration of the award, along with their resumes and any additional supplemental materials for consideration.
- NLF will conduct telephonic interviews with the submitted summer legal intern(s). NLF, at its option, may select to narrow the pool of eligible summer legal interns to interview. NLF will select the award recipient and will use the interviews, resume, supporting materials, and input from the host organization in its deliberations.
- Upon award, NLF will provide a grant of $6,000 to the host organization. 100% of this grant must be used for the legal intern’s salary. The host organization is responsible for any administrative fees, payroll processing fees, federal withholding, taxes, etc.
- The selected intern shall work at the host organization for a minimum of 40 hours a week for 10 weeks during the summer of 2016.
