Immigrant Justice Corps Community Fellowships


We are delighted to announce national search for talented college graduates to join Immigrant Justice Corps, the country’s first fellowship program dedicated to providing high quality immigration legal services. IJC Community Fellows will be fully funded for two years of service to poor immigrants in New York.

Community Fellows become Board of Immigration Appeals accredited representatives. They are placed in community-based host organizations throughout New York City, and their work is directly supervised by Immigrant Justice Corps’ staff attorneys. At the end of the fellowship, Community Fellows will be extraordinarily well trained, deeply networked in the legal and immigrant rights community, and profoundly committed to developing creative strategies to fight poverty and ensure access to justice. The Immigrant Justice Corps Fellowship provides an excellent experience for recent graduates considering a career in law and/or immigrant rights advocacy.

Community Fellowships are available to students who are completing their undergraduate degree by August 2016 or completed it in 2015, and are committed to immigrant justice. Community Fellows become Board of Immigration Appeals accredited representatives. Their work is directly supervised by experienced immigration attorneys.
