The Intellectual Property Law Section of the Idaho State Bar is pleased to offer scholarships to members of the Section to enable its members to pursue certifications (or other higher-level learning opportunities) to elevate their skills for the practice of intellectual property law in Idaho.


All members of the Intellectual Property Law Section are eligible to apply for the scholarship awards. This includes members at the standard membership dues level (i.e., $40 for attorneys admitted to the Idaho State Bar and for registered patent agents), the discounted membership dues level (i.e., $20 for law professors and judicial law clerks), and the free dues level (i.e., free membership for law students). A successful applicant selected as a recipient must also be a Section member in good standing at the time the scholarship award is distributed to that recipient.

Expense Eligibility

Scholarship amounts awarded shall be applied only as reimbursement for funds expended by the applicant on or after June 1, 2022. Reimbursable expenses are limited to those already personally incurred by the applicant without reimbursement, or eligibility for reimbursement, from another source (e.g., an employer, another organization). Reimbursable expenses are also limited to those in the following categories of expenses:

  • Course registration fees (e.g., patent bar study course registration fees, certified licensing professional (CLP) exam review course fees, continuing legal education registration fees)
  • Course material fees (e.g., patent bar study guides)
  • Certification application and examination fees (e.g., patent bar application and examination fees; CLE application and exam fees)

Selection Considerations

The Scholarship recipient(s) will be selected by a committee of the Intellectual Property Law Section based on the following considerations:

  • Need for financial assistance for the expenses in question.
  • Commitment to apply the knowledge to be learned from the certification or other higher-level learning opportunity in the practice or furtherance of intellectual property law (e.g., patent, copyright, trademark, unfair competition, trade secret, and licensing) in Idaho.
  • Willingness to share the knowledge gained with the Section’s membership by way of a continuing legal education (CLE) presentation.
  • Willingness to contribute to the scholarship pool in the future.

Because the funds in the scholarship pool are limited, the committee, in determining whether and how much to award a successful applicant, will also consider the amount of funds available in the pool, the amount of financial assistance requested by the applicant, and the number and amounts of financial assistance requests from other applicants
