NCRA CASE Student Scholarship

Council on Approved Student Education (CASE) Student Scholarship

The Council on Approved Student Education is pleased to announce that nominations are being solicited for the 2021 CASE Student Scholarship. Students from NCRA-approved reporter education programs are encouraged to apply for consideration of the five scholarship awards offered through the National Court Reporters Association.

The top prize of $1500 is the Sue Shelton White Scholarship, named in honor 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.
