National Judicial College Scholaraships for New Mexico District Court Judges
The New Mexico-based J. F Maddox Foundation has awarded a grant to The National Judicial College (NJC) to be used for scholarships for district court judges from New Mexico to take a course at the NJC through December 2016. Maddox scholarships may range between $500-$2,000. As tuition for a typical NJC four-day course costs $1,025 (plus conference fee of $255), New Mexico district court judges may be able to attend a course at little to no cost. This scholarship may also be used for travel/lodging expenses. Funding is limited and is available on a first come, first served basis.
Additionally, funding is available from the New Mexico Judicial Education Center for NM Judges to attend NJC courses. If you are interested in attending an NJC course, please contact Cynthia Hensley at the New Mexico Judicial Education Center at 505-277-2097 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org before you register for the course with the NJC. Cynthia can assist you with the funding options available from JEC, NJC and other funding sources.
