GRANTS FOR HEALTH and JUVENILE JUSTICE LAW/POLICY RESEARCH ASSISTANTS – DEADLINE WEDNESDAY AUGUST 30
We are now accepting applications for Research Assistance (RA) grants to help on law and policy related to health and juvenile justice in the fall 2017 term. The official announcement and statement of requirements follows below. The deadline for applications is 3:00pm on Wednesday, August 30. To apply, please submit a resume with cover letter (addressed to Selection Committee, which shall be appointed by the Dean) describing your interest in and qualifications for a grant, and the reasons you believe the Committee should select you for a grant. It is anticipated we will have two (2) student RA grants for the fall. (Note: Students should make sure, before applying, that this research assistant position does not negatively affect any existing obligations (e.g. Humphreys Fellowship or any other service scholarship).) Submit applications electronically to Ms. Karol Landers at firstname.lastname@example.org. It will make this process easier if you submit the application as a single PDF document. The subject line of the email should clearly state your name and the connection to the Health-JJ Law/Policy RA Grant. Please address any questions about this opportunity to Institute for Health Law & Policy Director, Professor Amy Campbell.
The Health and Juvenile Justice Law/Policy Grants for Research Assistance were created through an award from the State Legislature (through the U of M) to the Institute for Health Law & Policy and the Children’s Defense Clinic at the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. We anticipate two (2) fall semester RA positions. Grants will be awarded to students in their second or third year of law school who are in good academic standing and have exemplified academic merit. Preference will be given to students in the Certificate in Health Law Program, in the JD/MPH program, who have taken Health Law (or are taking Health Law or Mental Health Law in the fall 2017 semester), who have taken the Children’s Defense Clinic (or are taking the Clinic in the fall 2017 semester), or who have otherwise demonstrated a commitment to health law and/or juvenile justice. Students who are awarded a grant are expected to enroll in the Health Policy Practicum in the spring 2018 term for skills-development related to these RA opportunities.
