Council On State Taxation (COST) Graduate Fellowship in State and Local Taxation

Awarding Institution

Georgetown University Law Center (GULC)

Deadline

July 01, 2021

Scholarship Award

7500 USD

Fellowship Description:
In conjunction with the Council On State Taxation (COST), the Law Center invites applications for fellowships in State and Local Taxation, one of the fastest-growing tax disciplines. A COST Fellow receives a $7,500 stipend for a two-semester internship at COST. A COST Fellow is expected to commit 10 hours per week to COST during the school year (excludes final exams) and COST will pay its fellows for any work in excess of 10 hours and for work conducted during the winter break. Please note the COST Fellowship may affect financial aid packages. Preference is given to full-time LL.M. (Taxation) students. Past COST fellows (post-LL.M. program) obtained full-time tax positions with top accounting, consulting, law firms, and Fortune 500 company tax departments.

About COST:
COST is the premier state tax organization representing taxpayers. COST is a nonprofit trade association consisting of nearly 600 multi-state corporations engaged in interstate and international business. COST's objective is to preserve and promote equitable and nondiscriminatory state and local taxation of multijurisdictional business entities.

Position Description:
A COST Fellow assists COST legal staff with a range of core COST activities including substantial writing for COST publications; supporting COST's educational and advocacy activities through legislative analysis and other legislative support activities; updating and revising presentation materials; research, analysis, and compilation of information for COST "scorecards" on state tax administration; and assisting with research and writing amicus briefs filed with the highest state and federal courts on significant state tax issues.

Selection Criteria:
The selection of Georgetown/COST fellows is based on academic merit, experience, and interest in the field of state and local taxation. Qualified applicants with a demonstrated interest and accomplishments in the field of tax law are preferred; however, significant exposure to state and local tax issues is not required. Candidates must have proficient writing and communication skills, and a successful candidate will enjoy working as part of a team. This fellowship is only available to U.S. Citizens and those who have the right to work in the U.S.

Application Method:
To apply for a COST Fellowship, please submit a completed Georgetown University Law Center LL.M application to the Taxation program (including all required supplementary materials) and indicate your interest in the COST Fellowship on your LL.M. application form. A writing sample of at least 5 pages (10 pages if double spaced) in length must be submitted to the Graduate Admissions Office by July 1, 2021. Program applicants may be interviewed and fellows are typically selected at the beginning of the fall semester.
