 In 1985, the National Criminal Defense College was established by Deryl Dantzler and she held the position of Dean for thirty years.  In honor of her devotion to the College, The Deryl Dantzler Scholarship Fund was created to continue the thirty-year tradition of offering scholarships to participants in need. 

Many have donated to this Fund and to other scholarship funds in the past. These donations have made it possible for so many students to attend the Trial Practice Institute who might not otherwise have had the opportunity.

In fact, each year a substantial number of students attend the TPI on full or partial scholarships made possible by our donors. These students take the lessons learned during their time at NCDC back to their firms, their offices, and most importantly, their clients.

A full scholarship for the Summer Trial Practice Institute includes $2,500 for tuition and $775 in housing fees for a shared double room. We are pleased to accept donations as small as $20 and as large as $10,000. Your contribution, however large or small, is tax deductible. Scholarships may be designated to honor or remember any person and recipients may be restricted by geography, membership, type of practice or other attribute.

If you would like to turn the Trial Practice Institute into a reality for one of our participants, please consider donating to the Deryl Dantzler Scholarship Fund.

The message of the National Criminal Defense College will live on in each of these students—thanks in no small part to you.  Please support NCDC by clicking on the DONATE button below.
