Anti-Defamation LeagueThe Summer 2008 Yegelwel Fellowship provides a $4,000 stipend to a UF Law student to participate in a Summer Fellowship Program at the Anti-Defamation League, Florida Regional Office in Boca Raton. A generous gift from UF Law alumnus Evan Yegelwel, who graduated in 1980, has made this fellowship possible. Yegelwel is a partner in the Jacksonville law firm of Brown, Terrell, Hogan, Ellis, McClamma, & Yegelwel. The fellowship will last eight weeks, with the student committing to a minimum of 35 hours per week. The fellow will be supervised by the ADL Southern Area Counsel and will conduct research on hate crimes, housing discrimination, education, bullying, or other bias-related topics. The Yegelwel Fellowship is limited to UF Law students who have completed the first-year required curriculum and Constitutional Law prior to the fellowship summer and who at the time of application are in good academic standing. The student must also pass a background check. To apply, please submit the following: a personal statement of 500 words or less outlining any past experiences or qualifications that indicate your interest in and commitment to public service; a resume; two references (including names, addresses and phone numbers); an official transcript; and a letter verifying good academic standing. Please submit a hard copy of these items to Patricia Hancock in 340 Holland Hall. Fellowship applications are due Friday, Jan. 18.
