NAID/ADC Announces Summer 2005 Fellowships

NAID/ADC Announces Summer 2005 Fellowships

NAID, an Association of Defense Communities (NAID/ADC) is the nation's leading membership organization supporting communities with active, closed and closing defense installations. Our 700 members unite the diverse interests of communities, the private sector and the military on issues of mission enhancement/realignment, community-base partnerships, privatization and closure/redevelopment.

The Simon Fellowship - established by the NAID/ADC Board of Directors and named for past president Jeffrey Simon - is seeking qualified students from around the nation for two paid summer fellowships. There are two locations for this year's program: (1) NAID/ADC's Washington, D.C., office and (2) the state of California Office of Military & Aerospace Support office in Sacramento, California. Both fellows will work on national/state issues regarding base realignment and closure (BRAC) and its impacts.

The program will run for 8-10 weeks beginning in May and finishing in August. Each fellow will be supported by a full stipend from NAID/ADC and will be required to work 40 hours per week for the duration of his or her internship. This program is open to graduate students and selected advanced undergraduates in a variety of fields.

The selected students must demonstrate an interest in one or more of the following areas: Public Policy, Public Management and Land Use Planning. Other interests will be considered so long as the applicant can demonstrate its application to economic development or redevelopment.

Consideration will be given to classroom experience, work experience, professor recommendation and knowledge of economic development principles. No one factor will be considered more important than another, and we encourage all interested candidates to apply.

All applications must be received by April 8, 2005. They may be faxed to 202.822.8819. Applicants must submit the following: (1) Cover letter; (2) one-page resume; (3) letter of recommendation from a professor at your college or university. Applicants will be notified of their status by April 10.

In addition, fellows will be expected to attend the NAID/ADC Annual Conference (June 4-7) in Denver, Colorado at our expense.
