USC Bovard Scholars

Bovard Scholar.jpg
 Many outstanding students from educationally and economically under-resourced communities do not even apply to the nation’s best universities — despite the likelihood not only of being admitted but also of receiving generous financial aid that often makes it less expensive than attending less-selective colleges.  Those talented students that are correctly “matched” with selective institutions graduate at much higher rates (Hoxby & Avery, 2013).
To that end, our USC Bovard Scholars receive admission and financial aid guidance, comprehensive test preparation, personalized career exploration and leadership development opportunities.  The program includes an intensive, three-week residential experience during the summer on the USC campus and personal coaching throughout the college application and decision-making process, all at no cost to the student.  Our scholars engage with guest speakers, industry experts, career specialists and recent college graduates to define their personal pathway to college and beyond.
The summer program is set to run July 15 – August 4, 2018.  During their senior year, Scholars will work with their coaches to receive support and feedback as questions arise.  The program application is open.  All interested and eligible high school juniors are encouraged to apply.  Space in the program is limited.  For more information, visit scholars.usc.edu.

Interested in a Career in Law?

Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office Is Accepting Applications
For Winter and Spring High School Internships

Internship Program to Run in Mid-Winter and Spring Cycles; Program Provides
Unique Learning Experience in Public Service and Law

Acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez today announced the launch of a competitive mid-winter and spring internship program for current high school juniors and seniors who live and attend school in Brooklyn. Students with a strong interest in criminal justice or the public interest sector and who meet the requisite eligibility criteria are encouraged to apply and participate in one of two intensive one-week programs.

Acting District Attorney Gonzalez said, “This internship program will offer hands-on experience into how criminal cases develop, everything from the steps taken to investigate and build a case, to how cases are presented in court. Interns accepted into the program will not only learn about the criminal justice system and legal careers, but will also develop team-building and leadership skills that will enhance their professional development.”

Selected students will be assigned to a unit within the DA’s office and will support the work of Assistant District Attorneys and other members of the DA’s staff. They can expect to assist with legal research and analysis using the Internet, news articles and legal periodicals; assist attorneys on pretrial matters; work on case preparation, discovery, file maintenance and organizing court documents; participate in trial zone workshops; participate in judicial, legal and law enforcement-related field trips; and observe criminal proceedings including trials, guilty pleas and sentencings.

The program is open to qualifying juniors and seniors who must be able to commit to the entire duration of either of two internship cycles. Cycle 1 will run from February 20, 2018 to February 23, 2018; Cycle 2 will run from April 2, 2018 to April 6, 2018. Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

This is an unpaid internship, but students will receive a MetroCard to assist with transportation. Applicants are required to supply their most recent school transcript, a one-page resume, one letter of recommendation from either a teacher, coach, or mentor and must submit a 300 word typed essay (12 pt. font and double-spaced) on why they are interested in interning with the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office and what impact they think it will have on their future personal and academic endeavors.

To apply, please visit: http://brooklynda.org/internships/ beginning November 27, 2017. Only the recommendation letter should be emailed to the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office at hsinternships@brooklynda.org in pdf format, with the subject line: Recommendation Letter (Applicant’s First and Last Name). All application materials must be received no later than Friday, December 22, 2017.
