Scholarships for female students doing public intereste work

Here's the info from Ms. JD:
Working in public interest this summer without sufficient funding? 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.

This year's essay topic asks applicants to discuss myths about being a law
student. Did you experience any pleasant surprises upon starting your study of
law? Did you learn any law school 'lessons' the hard way? Ms. JD wants to hear
about them. Applications are due no later than June 1. Recipients will be
notified no later than June 15.
