Community Fellowships are available to students who are completing their undergraduate degrees in the 2013-2014 academic year. They will be placed in community-based host organizations, which will be selected to participate in the IJC on the basis of competitive RFPs.
They will be supported by the IJC and many will become accredited representatives of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and will conduct outreach and represent community members on a range of cases such as naturalization applications, deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA), and other matters that can be managed by a non-lawyer until the point of final submission and review. The IJC’s 3 on-staff attorneys will closely supervise Community Fellows and “ride circuit” to host sites to review cases and ensure quality control.
Applications become available April 1, 2014 and are due by 11:59pm on May 1, 2014.
