The National Association of Pro Bono Professionals (NAPBPRO) offers the Hanna Cohn Equal Justice Conference Scholarship to its members to assist with the expenses of attending the annual ABA/NLADA Equal Justice Conference in San Diego, CA from May 10-12, 2018.
The scholarship can be used to cover lodging, travel, and registration fees, not to exceed $500 for any one person. The ABA Center for Pro Bono will waive the conference registration fee for one NAPBPRO Scholarship recipient.
The requirements are basic: minimum of 6 month NAPBPRO membership and statement of need, along with a pledge to participate in NAPBPRO activities at the EJC and throughout the year. The scholarship is designed to assist pro bono professionals with program budgets that do not permit the expense of EJC attendance. A person may not receive a scholarship more often than once every three years and may not combine this scholarship with others.
One or more scholarships are available each year and are competitive. All scholarship decisions by NAPBPRO are final and non-appealable.
The deadline to apply is February 8, 2018.
