NAWL will offer scholarship assistance for this conference to a limited number of attorneys who wish to attend but may not be able to do so due to cost considerations.

The application process requires the applicant to demonstrate their eligibility and to provide a short essay setting forth the reasons why she/he believes she/he is an appropriate candidate for receiving scholarship funds, including how the conference will benefit her/him, and information regarding financial need.
