Three steps to apply for financial assistance


  1. Choose an appropriate course for your jurisdiction or career path.
  2. Register for a course on the NJC’s online registration system. You will have the option to apply for a scholarship when you confirm your course/program selection. Please note that you are not obligated to attend a course if you do not receive a scholarship.
  3. Contact your state judicial educator, your court administrator, or your funding agency for any additional funding sources


Individuals, foundations, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the State Justice Institute (SJI), and other supporters help make judicial education more affordable.
