NAPLA will offer scholarships of up to $1,000 to Pre-Law Advisors who wish to attend the 2018 NAPLA Conference at Quinnipiac School of Law, and whose institutions are unable or unwilling to provide funding for conference expenses. This scholarship can be used to help defray the costs of attending the conference, including conference registration fee (NAPLA one-year membership fee included), overnight accommodations at the Best Western Plus, and transportation. If you believe that you will need more than $1000 to attend, please contact Dianne McDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Scholarships are awarded based upon available funds and the number of qualified applicants. If awarded a conference scholarship, the recipient will need to retain receipts for expenses incurred for conference registration and qualifying transportation. All scholarship recipients must stay in the Best Western Plus since it is the lowest-price hotel (and the most convenient). These receipts will then need to be submitted to NAPLA, along with an expense form, at which time expenses up to the value of the scholarship awarded will be reimbursed. Reimbursement generally takes up to three weeks from receipt of completed expense forms.
Completed applications must include two documents. Both documents MUST be complete and received by the application deadline in order to be considered for a conference scholarship.
The application deadline is April 10, 2018.
For all inquiries, please contact Prof. Tom Rozinski, NAPLA First Vice President, at email@example.com.
