Each year IJC awards two-year Community Fellowships to 10 exceptional college graduates with the linguistic skills, passion, and cultural competency to work with diverse immigrant communities.  IJC trains Fellows to be experts in immigration law and advocacy.

Community Fellows conduct outreach, screen, and aid immigrants with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”), Temporary Protected Status (“TPS”), Green Card, citizenship applications, and more. 

Community Fellows become Board of Immigration Appeals Partially Accredited Representatives which allows them to represent clients before USCIS. Embedded within immigrant communities, they serve as first responders  to our program.

IJC Fellows serve for two years and are provided a full salary and benefits.

We are now accepting application for our 2019 Class of Community Fellows.
