The awards help to defray a range of costs, including travel and interview expenses and the creation, distribution, administration and analysis of survey instruments. All HLS students may apply and approved applicants may be granted up to $2,500 in funding, which may be aggregated with other funding, such as winter term research grants.

Deadline: January 4, 2010

Berkman’s Cyberlaw Clinic and the Citizen Media Law Project (CMLP) are currently accepting applications for full-time summer interns.
