Mid-Year Meeting Scholarship Details

» Peter Berge Boot Camp Scholarship

The deadline for applications is Dec. 5, 2018

Please contact Laurie Krueger at lauriek@ewald.com at the ACLEA Office if you're interested in a scholarship and need more info.

The Association for Continuing Legal Education recognizes that one of the greatest benefits available to its members is the chance to attend its winter and summer meetings. ACLEA also recognizes that there are some members who cannot attend meetings because of financial hardship. ACLEA offers a limited number of scholarships to individual members to cover the registration costs for the Annual and Mid-Year Meetings.


What Do the Scholarships Cover?

The scholarships cover the full or partial cost of registering for the educational segments of the meeting. Expenses related to ACLEA-sponsored social events, travel to and from the meeting, hotel stay, and meals are the responsibility of the scholarship recipient.


Who is Eligible?

The scholarship program is open to all ACLEA members in good standing. ACLEA members may apply for a scholarship at any time; however, once a member receives a scholarship, he or she must wait two years from the date of the scholarship award before being eligible to receive another scholarship. Members of the Executive Committee of ACLEA are not eligible to apply for scholarships during their terms on the Executive Committee.

The criteria to be used to determine if an applicant is eligible for a scholarship include: financial need, number of programs attended in the past, length of time as an ACLEA member, whether the applicant is a presenter at the particular meeting or has been one in the past, and the size of the CLE organization to which the applicant belongs.


How Do I Apply for a Scholarship?

Applicants for a scholarship must complete and submit a scholarship application form ONLINE (or PDF to the ACLEA Executive Director)


Deadlines:
Applications must be received by December 5, 2018 to be considered.
Decisions made and recipients notified by December 12, 2018.

Are the Scholarship Awards Confidential?

Although ACLEA may publicize the fact that scholarships have been awarded, and the number of scholarships so awarded, the individual identities of scholarship applicants or grantees shall remain strictly confidential.


Peter Berge Boot Camp Scholarship

Introduction

Peter Berge stepped down from ACLEA’s Executive Committee for health reasons just a few months before he was to become the organization’s president. Peter has made countless contributions to ACLEA over the years, as a member of the EC, co-chair of the Technology SIG, speaker, and as a strong advocate of the goals and values of the organization. He has been especially involved in ACLEA’s Boot Camp, teaching both technology and marketing to new members. To honor him for his dedication to ACLEA and to recognize the significant role he has played in our signature member orientation program, the ACLEA Boot Camp, a scholarship has been created in his name. Two scholarships will be offered each year.

What Does the Scholarship Cover?

The scholarship covers the registration fee for the ACLEA Pre Conference Boot Camp Session only. It does not include the full conference. Expenses related to ACLEA-sponsored social events, travel to and from the meeting, hotel stay, and meals are the responsibility of the scholarship recipient.

Eligibility

Any ACLEA member may apply for a scholarship at any time; however, once a member receives a scholarship, he or she will not be eligible for a second Boot Camp Scholarship.

The criteria to be used to determine if an applicant is eligible for a scholarship include financial need and the size of the CLE organization to which the applicant belongs.

Application for Scholarship

Applicants for a scholarship must complete and submit to the Executive Director of ACLEA a scholarship application form. Applications must be received at least 45 days before the first day of the applicable meeting to be considered.

Scholarship Decisions

The Executive Director of ACLEA will review and decide upon scholarship applications. The Executive Director may consult with the Executive Committee during the decision process.

Confidentiality of Scholarship Awards

Although ACLEA may publicize the fact that scholarships have been awarded, and the number of scholarships so awarded, the individual identities of scholarship applicants or grantees shall remain strictly confidential.
