NCRF New Professional Reporter Grant closes June 2  — two awards available

The deadline to apply for the NCRF New Professional Grant is June 2. The grant awards funds to help recent graduates working in any of three career paths: Judicial (official/freelance), CART, or captioning. Two awards will go to graduates who have completed a court reporting or captioning program within the past year, are in their first year of work, and meet specific criteria. Two grants — one each in the amounts of $2,000 and $1,000 — will be awarded.

Last year’s first-place grant was awarded to Bethany Morse, RSR, a freelancer in Mount Pleasant, S.C. The second-place grant was awarded to Claire Stein, RPR, an official in Madison, Wis.

Full criteria, an application, and  past recipients can be found on the grant page. The application period closes June 2, 2023.

Two additional grants for new professionals who have passed their RSR or RPR, the Monyeen Black Memorial Grant and the Michelle Grimes Memorial Grant, are currently available and close June 17.
