OCPA Student Scholarship

OCPA awards the Student Scholarships to five local colleges. College administrators are given discretion as to which students most deserve the scholarship funds for reimbursement of paralegal education, seminars, meetings, OCPA membership or fees for certifications (example: the CP exam or preparation classes), or advanced certification (example: ACP). The scholarships are awarded at the OCPA Annual Meeting, Elections and Holiday Party each year. If a college deems no qualified winners, no scholarship will be awarded.
