Council on Approved Student Education (CASE) Student Scholarship
Students from NCRA-approved court reporting education programs are encouraged to apply for consideration of the annual five scholarship awards offered through the National Court Reporters Association.
The top prize of $1500 is the Sue Shelton White Scholarship, named in honor of Sue Shelton White. White was a feminist leader originally from Henderson, Tenn., born on May 25, 1887, who served as a national leader of the women’s suffrage movement. She also worked as an official court reporter for the Tennessee Supreme Court from 1907 until 1918 and opened her own stenography business. In 1920, White earned her law degree from the Washington College of Law.
Four additional scholarships are available in the amounts of $250, $500, $750, and $1000.
Notification of the CASE Scholarship is sent each August to all NCRA-approved court reporting programs.
Nominations open on Aug. 1.
