The Iowa Innovation, Business & Law Center is pleased to once again offer summer stipends to students working in unpaid positions in intellectual property, antitrust, corporate, business, health, technology, entertainment, or art law, or related fields.  These stipends are available for Summer 2016; stipend amounts vary from $1,000 to $3,000 each.  Interested students should submit applications by May 5.

Recent recipients of IBL summer stipends have worked health law at a non-profit Iowa medical services provider, copyright law at a large museum, technology law and policy at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and more.

To apply for a stipend, students should submit a letter to Prof. Rantanen describing the position, the projects or legal issues on which the student will work, information about whether the student will be paid, and other relevant information about the student’s financial needs including expected expenses associated with taking the position. Confirmation of the student's position from the employer/supervisor will also be required.
