Scholarships are a top priority for The National Judicial College. In surveys conducted of judges who took courses in 2013 and 2014, 98% responded they would take another NJC course. When asked what would prevent them from taking another course, 75% listed lack of funding. Scholarship gifts help judges pursue continuing education opportunities at the NJC. Thank you to our many donors below who recognize that well-educated judges are the foundation of a free and independent judiciary.
Establishing a Scholarship
The NJC has two scholarship programs and invites donors to participate by establishing an Endowed or Annual Named Scholarship.
- An Endowed Scholarship may be established in the name of the donor or in another name specified by the donor with a minimum gift of $25,000. The principal (corpus) of the endowment will be invested by the NJC Finance Office and the annual interest will fund the scholarship. The corpus of the endowment may never be spent. The donor may make additional contributions to add to the corpus at any time.
- An Annual Named Scholarship may be established with a minimum of $2,500.
