  • Assist with intake,
  • Research issues affecting the ability of women veterans to receive discharge upgrades and benefits,
  • Review and analyze client files,
  • Help draft applications in support of discharge upgrades and benefits, and

Fran Kandel Public Interest Fellowship Projects

The WLALA Foundation Fran Kandel Public Interest Fellowship enables law students to work with an organization or individually to develop and implement a project in the field of public interest law, in the spirit of Fran Kandel. The WLALA Kandel Fellowship is designed to fund particular projects with a tangible outcome. Examples of past projects are below. While not intended for purely academic research, the fellowship can support an internship with a project component. Strong preference is given to applicants who have the support of a sponsoring organization and who have arranged for an organization or suitable individual to supervise their project. Fellows may also accept school or other public interest funding.
