(1) This online application may not "autosave"; the applicant should be prepared to complete the entire application in one session.
(2) Submission of an application for the People of Color Stipend has no bearing on registration for the National Convention; applicants for the stipend will need to submit their registration forms separately to the NO.
(3) The applicant is required to share certain personal information. TUPOCC and the National Lawyers Guild will not willingly or knowingly share this information with third parties.
(4) The applicant will not receive reimbursement from the NO until the convention, where they will pick up their check.
