If you have female students working in public interest jobs this summer, let them know that Ms. JD is awarding two $500 scholarships to female law students entering their second or third year at an accredited U.S. law school and working the summer of 2008 at least 35 hours per week for a minimum of 8 weeks at a government agency or nonprofit organization. Unpaid judicial externs also qualify.
To apply, students must write an essay. This year's essay topic asks applicants to discuss myths about being a law student. Did the student experience any pleasant surprises upon starting the study of law? Did she learn any law school "lessons" the hard way? Applications are due no later than June 1. Recipients will be notified no later than June 15.
