If you could use financial assistance to further your paralegal education, it’s available…you just have to search, meet the requirements and take the time to apply.
For instance, Legal Secretaries of Cape May County, New Jersey awards a $500-$750 scholarship annually and is currently seeking applicants for 2011.
Applicants must be residents of Cape May County and enrolled in the Paralegal Studies program at Atlantic Cape Community College (ACCC)…or be a graduating Cape May County high school senior who intends to enroll in the Paralegal Studies Program at ACC. Grade point average and community service are also factors in determining the winner.
The 2010 scholarship winner, Barbara Montgomery, is shown here with Michele Devine-Hartnett, President of the association.
With an April 22, 2011 deadline looming, applications are available at http://legalsecretariesofcmc.com/ or contact the association’s President, Michel Devine-Hartnet at 609-846-0969
To fund the scholarship, the association is hosting an event that is open to the public and sounds like a lot of fun: a disco- themed evening of food, fun and a Chinese auction on Wed., April 27, from 5:30-8 p.m at Avalon Country Club. The cost is $25 and includes appetizers, soda, iced tea and coffee/tea.
Legal Secretaries of Cape May County was formed in 1990. Members include legal secretaries, paralegals, and legal assistants, as well as employees of courts, banks, trust companies, title companies, real estate offices, and public offices.
