H. Stewart Dunn, Jr. Civil Liberties Fellowships
Application review begins April 24, 2013
Direct questions about the Fellowships to Professor [[clnema, Chris Nemacheck]]
Thanks to a generous donation by Timothy P. Dunn and his wife, Ellen R. Stofan, the College of William & Mary established the H. Stewart Dunn, Jr. Civil Liberties Project. The Project provides support for undergraduate and law student research, as well as summer internships and post-graduate fellowships with organizations that support or protect civil liberties. The Project also funds guest lectures and collaborative teaching of civil liberties in the Law School and undergraduate academic programs.
An important feature of the H. Stewart Dunn Jr. Civil Liberties Project is providing students with funding for summer internships that advance civil liberties causes. William and Mary undergraduates are encouraged to seek out low or unpaid civil liberties internship positions at organizations of their choice and apply for a Dunn Fellowship to fund their work. Dunn Fellowships are available for civil liberties internships of personal interest to the applicant, regardless of political affiliation or subject, so long as that organization seeks to preserve and protect civil liberties afforded Americans by the U.S. Constitution. Special consideration will be given to internships with organization that address civil liberties afforded by the First Amendment
For information on past Dunn Fellows, see the information on undergraduate internships.
The project will fund up to 4 summer internships for William & Mary undergraduates whose internships fit the criteria above. Fellowships will range from $1000 to $2000 depending on student need. Applicants may be from any field of study, but they must be continuing undergraduate students. Internships must last a minimum of five full-time weeks.
As part of developing opportunities for future W&M Dunn Fellows, at the completion of the internship, Fellows will be expected to provide a one-page summary of their work and responsibilities with their civil liberties organization. This report will be submitted to Professor Nemacheck (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than September 15 of the year in which the internship was completed.
Upon completion of the internship, scholarship recipients must complete and submit an online evaluation of the internship.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis beginning on April 24. If you have not secured an internship by April 24, you may still apply for a fellowship, but no funds will be disbursed until the student has submitted certification by an on-site supervisor that s/he will be undertaking the work. The College reserves the right to contact the on-site supervisor at any point with regard to the intern’s performance.
