Financial Hardship Scholarship Eligibility Requirements: Marino Institute for Continuing Legal Education (MICLE) will make the decision on granting financial hardship scholarships. 10% of all available seats per event will be reserved for financial hardship scholarships. Scholarships are available for all attorneys. Attorneys who have been admitted to practice in any state and who are unemployed, employees in the public sector demonstrating need, attorneys who can establish financial hardship in a Statement of Need, or earning less than $50,000.00 may be granted financial hardship scholarships. MICLE will evaluate all other applications based upon the following criteria: all sources of applicant’s income, all sources of applicant’s debts, applicant’s past employment, applicant’s present employment, number of applicant’s dependents, and any other considerations that demonstrate applicant’s financial hardship.
