Jeremy Berkowitz, Rachel Sanford and Kevin Ryan have earned the stipend money that makes their summer externships possible.

Three Rising 3Ls to Receive Summer
Communications Internship Stipends

The Federal Communications Bar Association has chosen three Catholic University law students to receive 2009 summer stipends from the Chairman Robert E. Lee Scholarship Fund for law school interns in unpaid legal communications-related positions.

The fund was established in 1993 in honor of Lee, who devoted 30 years of service to the FCC as a commissioner and as its chairman.

Jeremy Berkowitz, Kevin Ryan and Rachel Sanford are all rising 3Ls in CUA's Institute for Communications Law Studies. Each will receive a stipend in the amount of $5,000 to help defray his or her expenses during their summer internship.

In addition, the Foundation selected Sanford to receive this year's Max Paglin Award, representing an additional stipend of $600.

Sanford and Berkowitz will spend the summer working in the Office of Policy Analysis and Development for the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. Ryan will work for the House Subcommittee on Communications Technology and the Internet, House Energy and Commerce Committee.

All stipend recipients will be honored at the FCBA annual luncheon on June 11, and will also be featured in the organization's next monthly newsletter.
