The North Carolina Bar Foundation’s Scholarships & Grants Committee will review your application and determine whether you qualify for financial aid. The subcommittee tends to fund individuals or families of those (1) who are or were admitted to practice law in North Carolina and (2) are seeking short-term emergency relief. The subcommittee does recognize special circumstances that fall outside these guidelines. To determine whether or not you qualify for support, please contact the staff liaison to the Lawyers Helping Lawyers Fund, Kim Bart Mullikin at email@example.com or 919-657-1559.
Once the committee has met to review your application, there may be additional questions asked in order to clarify your need and circumstances. Subcommittee members may request specific documents to verify information supplied in the application. After it receives and reviews all application materials, the subcommittee will make a determination regarding grant support.
Please note that this process may take several weeks and we appreciate your patience.
This application and supporting documentation must be completed in its entirety. Failure to supply the information requested may result in the application being returned to you and will delay its processing. Be assured that the information you provide in this application will be treated confidentially.
Grant applications will be reviewed twice yearly: application deadlines are October 15th and April 15th.
