What is in the box of celebratory goodies?
Annual Meeting attendees who register before June 30, 2021 will receive a box of celebratory goodies mailed to them about a week before the conference. While we are keeping exact items in the box a surprise, some of the items will be used during community building sessions throughout the program.
Are there scholarships available?
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. Those attorneys who are actively employed in non-profit, government, educational institutions, or small companies, or those now in transition, are eligible for assistance. The financial assistance covers the registration fee for the events on July 21-22, 2021.
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.
Applicants should send materials to Chelsea Robinson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due by Friday, June 25, 2021.
