Scholarship opportunities are available for some adjudicators attending the 2020 NAWCJ Judicial College, which is taking place August 16-19, 2020, in Orlando, Florida.

First-time scholarships may be awarded to any current workers’ compensation adjudicator and may include a maximum of $300 for hotel accommodations, waiver of the conference registration fee, and a maximum of $500 for travel expenses. Second-time awards will be for a 50% reduction in the conference registration fee. No scholarship funds are available for meals, but two lunches and a reception with appetizers are included in the registration. The award of a scholarship depends, in part, on whether the applicant’s agency funds any portion of his or her costs. Preference will be given to first-time attendees who are interested in becoming actively involved in NAWCJ.

The scholarship program is funded by a grant from the Workers’ Compensation Institute, along with annual dues from associate members of NAWCJ (i.e., attorneys and other individuals/companies interested in supporting the education of members of the workers’ compensation judiciary).

Each interested adjudicator must email a completed scholarship application to by June 12, 2020. Scholarship awards will be announced by June 30, 2020, and successful applicants will be asked to make travel arrangements soon after to help minimize airfares.

College attendees will have an opportunity to meet members of the workers’ compensation judiciary from around the country, as well as practitioners and industry leaders. The Judicial College is an excellent opportunity to receive continuing education credit in a variety of areas, including order writing, evidence, medical issues, and other matters that routinely come before workers’ compensation adjudicators.

I encourage you to apply for a scholarship for the 2020 NAWCJ Judicial College.  See below for the scholarship application.

I hope to see you in Orlando.


The Honorable Bruce E. Moore, President
