Caravan Subsidy for Pre-Law Advisors

Law School Caravan Subsidy for Pre-Law Advisors

We’ll pay YOU to attend a MAPLA Law School Caravan Event!
MAPLA offers a membership benefit designed to enhance attendance at MAPLA Law School Caravan sites. Everybody wins—you have provided a great opportunity to your students, the students gain exposure to a large number of law school representatives, and the law schools get to meet even more potential applicants!

How It Works

You must be a member of MAPLA and be from an institution outside of the city in which the Caravan event is located. Organize a trip to the MAPLA Caravan site for yourself and at least three students. Pre-Law Advisors who bring at least 3 students are eligible to apply for travel assistance scholarships at the following rates:

  • Minimum: three students plus an advisor—MAPLA will reimburse your actual expenses up to $200.
  • For every additional student you bring, you’ll receive up to an additional $50/per student. For example, an advisor plus 6 students would be reimbursed for all expenses incurred up to a maximum of $350 (7 persons @ $50 each).
  • Bring as many students as possible—there is no upper limit.

Reimbursement Process

Save your receipts, and submit them to MAPLA Treasurer Don Racheter. Scanned documents are acceptable. Get a check!

Reimbursable expenses include ALL costs you incur in getting to a MAPLA site, including vehicle rentals, bus/train fare, taxis, gas, parking, tolls, hotel, food, etc.

One additional request—include a photo of your group at the Law School Caravan which we might use in a future edition of MAPLA Briefs!
