Established to increase participation in TIPS activities among minorities, solo and small firm practitioners, women, plaintiffs, government lawyers
About The Scholarship Fund:
How Can The Fund Help Me?
The scholarship fund helps members in
Potential recipients of scholarship funds must be TIPS members and must fall into one or more of the following categories: minorities, women, solo and small firm practitioners, plaintiffs, government lawyers
TIPS Scholarship Fund was established to broaden the involvement of TIPS members who do not have the financial ability to participate in Section activities. It is the goal of this fund to increase diversity, with a focus on minorities, women, solo and small firm practitioners, young attorneys, government employees, and public interest attorneys. This does not, however, exclude attorneys in other categories.
Scholarship funds are limited. TIPS regrets that not every applicant's request can be honored.
What Do I Need To Do?
Fill out an application! A scholarship application has been developed which enables the Board to review the criteria of each applicant, assess the financial need, and determine if a scholarship is warranted. The names of applicants are never distributed beyond the receiving office at TIPS Headquarters, not even to the Scholarship Fund Board. This ensures the confidentiality of the applicant.
We look forward to hearing from you!
