EJC Scholarship

The Hanna Cohn Equal Justice Conference Scholarship

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.

The scholarship can be used to cover lodging, travel, and registration fees, not to exceed $600 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: NAPBPRO membership (minimum of six months) and 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 made by NAPBPRO are final and non-appealable.

The deadline to apply is Friday, February 24, 2017.

To apply for the Hanna Cohn Equal Justice Conference Scholarship: please download the application (open in Acrobat Reader for a fillable form) and submit it, along with a brief statement of need (no more than one page), to: jvandulmen@communitylegalaid.org
