Interested applicants must be the designated and appointed Court Clerk for either the Town or Village Court within New York State and must be financially unable to attend the Conference by virtue of no municipal funding. Only one applicant per Court can apply, any previous winners will be reconsidered after a 5 year waiting period. The applicant need not be a member of this Association, but should be prepared to be approached about such membership.
The application should be completed and acknowledged by the applicant, complete with all required attachments, and submitted electronically.
Please be aware that on page 2, you will be asked to attach a recommendation letter from your Judge and a letter from the Chief Fiscal Officer of your municipality to verify non-municipal funding. It will be helpful for you to have those documents ready prior to filling out the application. They should be scanned and ready to be uploaded as a PDF document.
The successful applicants will be notified by the Scholarship Committee, in writing, prior to the training event. Only completed applications will be considered. The Scholarship Committee reserves the right to disregard any incomplete applications without prior notice to the applicant.
The decision of the Board of Directors will be considered final and will not be subject to any review or appeal process. In keeping with the mission of our organization, we offer this scholarship to further the education of Town and Village Court Clerks throughout the State of New York.
