Elder Law Institute Scholarships

The MSBA Elder Law Section has allocated funds to offer up to five or six (5 or 6) scholarships to attend the 2018 Elder Law Institute. Scholarship Committee will exercise its discretion to determine the exact way funds are divided based on the number if applications and any other pertinent factors. The institute occurs on October 22 and 23, 2018, at the Minnesota CLE Conference Center in Minneapolis. Each scholarship covers the complete cost of tuition. (Recipients will need to cover any other expenses that they may incur.)
To qualify: 
1) you must practice at least partly in elder law;
2) you must be practicing law within a solo, small firm, legal aid, or public interest law practice in either a paid or unpaid capacity; and 
3) you must either reside over 150 miles from the Twin Cities or have started your practice in elder law within the last three (3) years. 

Preference will be given to applicants who come from and/or serve diverse and underserved populations. Unemployed and underemployed attorneys are particularly encouraged to apply.  Applications are available here.
Interested applicants must apply by midnight on Friday, September 21, 2018.  Scholarship recipients will be notified by Tuesday, September 26, 2018.  Scholarship recipients must be MSBA Elder Law Section members by October 22, 2018; however, applicants do not need to be section members in order to apply and be selected.  Previous recipients of scholarships from the MSBA Elder Law Section are ineligible.
