ICLEF Scholarships - In 2006, the Indiana Continuing Legal Education Forum (ICLEF) created the ICLEF Scholarship Fund. The Scholarship Fund was originally established to help meet the educational needs of attorneys and continues to provide much needed relief to those facing a financial crunch. The ICLEF Scholarship Fund allocates money annually to cover the costs of registration and materials for those attorneys who are selected through an application process. Candidates must submit an application to ICLEF and must be an Indiana attorney in good standing. The application should include a description of scholarship need, addressing any financial, family, health or other factors that necessitate financial help. The applicant should also describe how the particular ICLEF course will benefit the individual and his or her law career. Due to the demand for this scholarship, a maximum of six (6) hours will be awarded per person per calendar year, unless otherwise approved. Applications are accepted year round. Please submit your application at least two weeks prior to the ICLEF seminar for which you are seeking a scholarship. Attorneys interested in more information on scholarship opportunities from ICLEF may contact Marie Wilmer at: marie@iclef.org -or- (317) 637-9102, ext. 236.  To download a printable PDF registration form Click Here.
