Immigration Justice Corps Community Fellowship
Each year, the Immigration Justice Corps awards Community Fellowships to recent college graduates with the linguistic skills, passion, and cultural competency to work with diverse immigrant communities. They are placed in community-based organizations mostly in and around New York City, as well as in other states. Fellows are provided a full salary and benefits. IJC trains Fellows to become experts in immigration law and pairs them to work within leading non-profit legal services providers and community based organizations. Applicants may have graduated from college either one or two years prior to the start of the Fellowship. Applicants may currently be enrolled in an undergraduate degree, so long as they will be graduating by the Spring of the Fellowship start year (For example, if you will graduate in Spring 2021, you are eligible to apply to the Class of 2021). We require Community Fellow applicants speak a language in addition to English. The languages that are in highest demand are Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Haitian Creole, and French.
