The Austin Bar Association Diversity Fellowship Program will be awarding split-summer internships of at least 10 weeks. The first half of the summer will be spent with a public sector employer (e.g., State District or County Court -at-Law Judge) selected by the Committee and the second half of the split-summer internship will be spent with a mid- to large-sized firm, also selected by the Committee.  Each fellow will receive a $5,000 stipend to fund his or her split-summer internship.  All participating employers will be located in the Austin area.  Questions regarding the Fellowship Program and application process should be directed to Tony Nelson at tony.nelson@co.travis.tx.us or Leslie Dippel at leslie.dippel@co.travis.tx.us.
