The National Court Reporters Foundation is proud to announce its latest scholarship for court reporting students. This scholarship is named for the late Robert H. (Bob) Clark, a court reporter from Los Angeles, Calif., who was dedicated to preserving the history of the profession. Clark was the beloved, longest-tenured Librarian-Historian in NCRA history, serving for approximately 26 years. In 1993, he donated his extensive collection of books, artifacts, and documents related to court reporting to NCRF to help establish the Robert H. Clark Library at NCRF headquarters. Clark was honored with the title of Librarian-Historian Emeritus in 1997. He passed away in 2000.
This year, Clark’s cousin, Donna Hamer, made a generous donation to NCRF to honor him, and, as a result, the Foundation created the Robert H. Clark Scholarship. It will be awarded in the amount of $1,800 for five years beginning this year and running through 2019. Court reporting students must be nominated by an instructor or advisor and meet a number of specific criteria to be eligible.
Nominations are currently being accepted for this scholarship. The deadline for the award is Sept. 21. The nomination form is available here.
