NACDL Public Defense Training Scholarships:
As a result of generous grant funding, NACDL is able to offer
scholarship assistance to public defense providers to attend this
NACDL training program. Scholarships will be awarded in the form of full
or partial reimbursement of the registration costs of the program.
Limited travel reimbursement stipends may also be awarded to qualifying
individuals to help defray the costs of travel and lodging.
Do you qualify for one of these Scholarships?
Demonstrated financial need is required to qualify for registration
and/or travel assistance. Scholarships are available for full time
public defenders, contract counsel, and private appointed counsel.
Membership in NACDL is not required to receive scholarship assistance
under the public defense training scholarship. Scholarship recipients
are expected to complete a pre- and post-training survey for the
training program that they attend. Preference will be given to
individuals with a high ratio of appointed to retained work, and those
willing and able to pass on what they have learned to other public
defense providers in their community.
Application Deadlines: Scholarship applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, with review of applications for a particular program beginning approximately three months prior to the start date of the program. Applicants who are seeking travel assistance should submit their applications at least six weeks prior to the start date of a program for the best chance of receiving travel awards. Applications received less than three weeks prior to the program date (after April 7) will not be considered.
