The National Judicial College (NJC) has created a scholarship fund in honor of Dr. James Richardson as a way to mark his retirement after 30 years of service. Richardson has run the Judicial Studies graduate education program offered jointly by the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), and the NJC since 1986.
Proceeds from the fund will help support judges who take courses leading to an MA or Ph.D. in Judicial Studies.
There are two choices for donation:
- A gift can be made to fund scholarships for NJC courses that count toward the degree and the NJC has agreed to match dollar for dollar all gifts received by the end of 2016, up to a limit of $25,000. (Richardson-NJC Fund)
- A gift can be made to fund scholarships for UNR level 700 Judicial Studies courses at UNR and anonymous donors have agreed to match dollar for dollar for all gifts received by the end of 2016 up to a limit of $25,000. (Richardson- UNR Foundation Fund)
Donors wishing to make a secure online gift can go to www.judges.org/giving and type Richardson – NJC or Richardson – UNR in the comments section.
Donors should make the check payable to the appropriate fund and mail it to The National Judicial College, Judicial Building/ MS 358, Reno, NV 89557.
