New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education: Scholarship/ Financial Hardship Policy
The New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education (NJICLE) 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 of the following sliding scale for attorneys with an annual income of $75,000 or less:
|Income up to $50,000||75% discount|
|Income $50,000 to $75,000||50% discount|
|Income above $75,000||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 regulating body.
Scholarships cannot be combined with other discounts and recipients are limited to a maximum of 12 credits per year.
Scholarship applications for December programs must be received by December 1st.
Awards are for specific programs and products and cannot be transferred to another program or product without reapplying for assistance… and the award may not be the same.
Scholarships will not be awarded retroactively. Applicants must apply for financial assistance prior to registering for a program.
To request a scholarship, please complete the application for 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.
Please note: Scholarships are not available for CLE On-Demand videos.
