New Jersey State League of Municipalities

Seminar Scholarship Policy for Attorneys

The New Jersey State League of Municipalities (NJLM) offers scholarships in the form of full or partial tuition waivers for attorneys with limited financial means. These scholarships enable attorneys who meet the eligibility criteria to fulfill their MCLE requirements at a substantially reduced cost.

As a general rule, scholarships will be awarded based on the following sliding scale for attorneys with an annual household income of $50,000 or less:

Unemployed

Full scholarship

Household Income up to $35,000

75% discount

Household Income $35,000 to $50,000

50% discount

Household Income above $50,000

No discount

Full or partial scholarships may also be awarded based on other special circumstances such as, for example, extraordinary medical expenses.

For certain programs, including, but not limited to, those involving meal functions, or other extraordinary costs, there will be a minimum attendance fee which may exceed the amount that would otherwise be payable based on the sliding scale above.

Please note that scholarships do not include MCLE fees. All scholarship recipients will be required to pay any applicable MCLE fees for the programs they attend unless those fees are waived by the regulating body.

Scholarships cannot be combined with other discounts and scholarship recipients are limited to a maximum of 12 credits per year.  The number of available scholarships is limited to 3% of total registrations per program.

To request a scholarship, please complete the form (Word / PDF) and fax it to 609-695-0151 at least ten (10) full working days before the program you wish to attend. You will be notified prior to the program whether you qualify and if seats are available.
