The Nootbaar Institute on Law, Religion & Ethics at Pepperdine Caruso School of Law is pleased to announce the availability of student stipends to support individual law student who are engaged in events, projects or initiatives that reflect the integration of spiritual faith and the legal profession. Examples of stipend-eligible activities include, but are not limited to: attending conferences that allow students to explore the impact of faith on their legal careers, presenting research that reflects the intersection of faith and law, or engaging in community service projects that enable students to act out their faith commitments.
The maximum amount for a stipend is $2,500. The purpose of the stipends is to provide financial support that will enable students to engage in such activities (e.g., conference registration fees and travel; costs of community service project) in situations where other funding is not available. Student activities that do not require financial support are not eligible.
The deadline is rolling, but funds are limited for each academic year and so applicants are encouraged to submit requests as soon as possible. Applicants should expect to receive a response within 4-6 weeks of submitting a request.
Stipend recipients will be asked to attend a yearly gathering of recipients, to share their perspectives and experiences with a general audience. Stipend recipients are also asked to permit the Nootbaar Institute to share information about projects with interested persons.
