2014 Mimi Netter Grant

The Miriam Maccoby Netter Fellowship

Summer 2014 fellowship made possible by $5,000 grant to a public interest IP organization or charity

Deadline: December 31, 2013

The New York Bar Foundation is accepting grant applications for The Miriam Maccoby Netter Fellowship, created and funded by the Intellectual Property Law Section.
One grant, valued at $5,000, will be awarded to a public interest intellectual property organization or charity, who will offer the fellowship to a student enrolled in a law school located in New York State during the 2014 Spring semester, or to a person who received their JD any time within the last three years. The fellowship will take place in Summer 2014. The fellow will assist the organization with matters relating to intellectual property law.

If you are interested in participating in such a fellowship this summer, we encourage you to contact an IP organization or charity of interest to you and let them know of the availability of this grant.  Please note that the organization/charity itself must apply for the grant directly, and law students or young lawyers may not do so on an organization/charity’s behalf.

Public interest legal organizations or charities interested in conducting The Miriam Maccoby Netter Fellowship, created and funded by the Intellectual Property Law Section in Summer 2014 must submit a grant proposal to The New York Bar Foundation on or before December 31, 2013. Grant applications are available at www.tnybf.org/grantapp.htm. You may also visit www.tnybf.org and click “Apply for a Grant” on the right side of the home page.

For complete details, see The Miriam Maccoby Netter Fellowship Guidelines here.

Any questions may be directed to the New York Bar Foundation at foundation@tnybf.org or (518) 487-5651.

We hope that you will consider taking advantage of this opportunity for a valuable summer fellowship that can help to advance you in your intellectual property law career.
