Financial Aid Policy 

The New York Association of Collaborative Professionals (NYACP) provides tuition assistance for New York attorneys who wish to attend NYACP CLE courses.  In response to written requests for financial assistance received by NYACP 10 days prior to the start date of the program, we permit the attorney to attend the program under the following guidelines: 

  • Unemployed with no other source of income: Fee waiver (excluding cost of materials, location charge*, and food)
  • Income up to  $35,000: 50% discount  (excluding cost of materials, location charge* and food)
  • Income up to  $35,000 to $50,000:  35% discount (excluding cost of materials, location charge* and food)
  • Income above $50,000:  No discount
  • Attorneys in public service: 30%  (excluding cost of materials, location charge*, and food)

Attorneys must include in their request an Affirmation of their financial status.

As a small, member supported organization, NYACP will, to the extent possible, work with others in need of financial assistance and unemployed attorneys who are unable to pay for materials and food on a case by case basis. 

For further information, please contact [email protected].

*A  "location charge" is a per person head charge on top of the venue charge that some venues impose - particularly if the venue is not providing food/drink.
