Copyright Office Announces Open Application Period for Ringer Fellowships
Issue No. 674 - July 3, 2017

The United States Copyright Office is now accepting applications for the Barbara A. Ringer Copyright Honors Program. The fellowship, which runs eighteen- to twenty-four months, was created for attorneys in the initial stages of their careers who demonstrate exceptional ability and interest in copyright law. Ringer Fellows work closely with senior attorneys and others in the Office of the General Counsel, the Office of Policy and International Affairs, the Office and the Register, and the Registration Program on a range of copyright-related law and policy matters. Ringer Fellows serve as full-time federal employees for the term of their fellowships and are eligible for salary and benefits as permitted under federal law.

Additional details about the Ringer Fellowship, including the application process, can be found on the Barbara A. Ringer Copyright Honors Program website. Applications will be accepted through September 15, 2017. The fellowship is expected to start in September 2018.
