Each year, ALWD & LSI award several research grants to legal research and writing teachers, to enable them to spend the summer exploring scholarly ideas of interest to them and to produce scholarship that will assist others in the field. In the past, the grants have varied from $2000 to $5000. Papers supported by these grants may will be guaranteed a presentation slot at either the bi-ennial ALWD or LWI conference. Royalties from the ALWD Citation Manual are the primary source of ALWD funding each year.
Mentors are available to assist applicants; the mentors are not involved in awarding the grants. Application mentors for the 2011 application process are: Christine Venter (Notre Dame); Julie Oseid (St. Thomas); Aida Alaka (Washburn); and Sarah Ricks (Rutgers-Camden). If you would like mentoring on applying for a grant, please contact Sarah Ricks, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Legal Writing Scholarship Grants are available to both full-time and adjunct teachers of legal writing and research. Applications must be received by 5 p.m. East Coast Time on February 7, 2011, at: email@example.com.
