DEADLINE EXTENDED! Application now due April 24th. The OJCL scholarship application to attend the NJCL convention in Richmond, VA is here! OJCL will award up to ten $100.00 and up to two $250.00 scholarship awards to students. All OJCL Members in good standing from Chapters in good standing are eligible. There are 2 types of scholarships: for Level ½ or Level 1 students and for Level 2 and above students. One $250.00 scholarship will be available to each division. N.B. we will wait to write the checks until NJCL convention is confirmed as “on”; should NJCL be cancelled, scholarship winners will receive their checks to attend in 2021. Seniors can still receive the $$ to attend next year as SCLers, but no attendance = no money.
