The Workers’ Rights Advocacy Scholarship Program is a project of the National Institute for Workers’ Rights (Institute), NELA’s public interest organization. NELA and the Institute are committed to ensuring that NELA’s nationally renowned continuing legal education programs are accessible to those who would otherwise not be able to attend without financial assistance. We encourage applications for scholarships from legal services, public interest, and private lawyers who represent workers. Based on financial need, scholarship awards will cover the cost of Convention registration fee, hotel expenses (room and tax for a maximum three-night stay), and/or transportation.
You must submit your application and supporting documents no later than Friday, May 6, 2022. If you have questions about the application process, please contact Karen Maoki at email@example.com.

The Institute’s mission is to advance workers’ rights through research, thought leadership, and education for policymakers, advocates, and the public.

“I very much appreciated the opportunity to attend the NELA conference. It was very helpful and informative as I think about how to expand my non-profit’s legal program work into advocacy on behalf of low wage workers and sexual harassment. Thank you very much for this opportunity.”
