Oregon Child Advocacy Project Fellowship Deadline is Today
The Oregon Child Advocacy Project is now accepting applications for fellowships for the 2010-11 academic year. The fellowships support students with a demonstrated interest in and commitment to pursuing a career in child advocacy.
The fellows each receive $4,500, paid in two installments as scholarships. In return, students help the project director, Professor Leslie Harris, with research and educational activities for the project.
The fellows are selected on the basis of academic achievement and demonstrated interest in and commitment to child advocacy law and practice. Students entering their second and third years of law school are eligible.
To apply, please submit a resume, a law school transcript (informal off the web is acceptable), a written statement of no more than 800 words, and at least one law school reference to Jill Forcier, the project’s administrative assistant, no later than 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 9. Students selected for interviews will be notified that week.
