NFPA Scholarships

I received the following through the National Federation of Paralegal Association’s LinkedIn group. I’m assuming NFPA will not mind me passing it alone in toto:

  • Group: National Federation of Paralegal Associations, Inc.
  • Subject: NFPA Scholarships – Topic to Be Announced March 1, 2011

NFPA will again offer two scholarships through the generosity of Thomson Reuters, to paralegal students. These scholarships are for $3000 & $2000, are open to students studying in paralegal programs across the country, and the winners are determined by a panel of judges who sit on the NFPA Advisory Board. None of the judges on this panel are educators; rather they are chosen from the lawyers, paralegals, and non-legal professionals who sit on this Board.

The winners are also provided a stipend to attend the NFPA Annual Convention, which is being held in Bloomington, MN October 13 – 16 this year. There the winners will be introduced by an executive of Thomson Reuters, have an opportunity to see NFPA in action and to interact with NFPA members from across the country.

There is a formal application process for the scholarships and an essay which must accompany the application. The topic will be announced next week, and I will provide additional information on how to apply at that time. In the meantime, if there are any questions on the scholarships, please let me know.
