ABA Diversity Fellowship:
Paying opportunity to gain experience working over the summer on endangered species-related issues. The ABA/SEER’s Endangered Species Committee is sponsoring an ABA Diversity Fellowship for a student interested in management and conservation in endangered species. The selected student will receive a $5000 stipend for this summer to work in either the U.S. Department of Justice or U.S. Department of Interior on endangered species issues. This is a great opportunity for a student to gain hands-on experience in this area, and our fellowship program will hopefully help add diversity to the natural resources law field.
• $5,000 summer stipend (8-10 week internship) for work on legal matters at the U.S. Department of Justice or the U.S. Department of the Interior working on natural resource issues that affect management and conservation of endangered species;
• Participation in meetings of the American Bar Association’s relevant committees; and,
• Assignment of a mentor from the American Bar Association.
• First or second year law students.
• Members of economically or socially disadvantaged or other underrepresented groups, including, among others, age, ability/disability, sexual orientation, cultural, linguistic, or geographic backgrounds.
