Alaska State children's Justice Act ("CJA" Task Force - Scholarship

The Children’s Justice Act Task Force is pleased to be able to offer training scholarships to those who participate in a Multidisciplinary Team (“MDT”) approach to child abuse issues in Alaska. The MDT is usually made up of all entities who work together in coordinated responses to child abuse allegations – Law Enforcement, Office of Children’s Services, Child Advocacy Centers, Prosecution, Medical and Mental Health Providers, Victim Advocates and possibly others, including Tribal entities.

Due to the increasing number of applications since this program began in 2004, we must sometimes make difficult decisions about which applications to approve. To help the CJA determine the best use of those limited funds, the CJA Scholarship Review Committee has established the following criteria for determining how scholarships will be awarded:
  • The ENTIRE application must be completed and all requested information must be provided to have the application considered.
  • Please describe your involvement in your local Multidisciplinary Team response to child abuse in your community.
  • Please describe how attending this training or conference will assist with the local Multidisciplinary Team efforts.
  • The Committee expects that, barring a very compelling reason; you or your agency/organization will pay for some of the expenses of the training. If this is not possible, please provide a detailed explanation for such a scenario.
In order to maximize the number of individuals that can receive training through these funds, preference will be given to those training's that occur within the state of Alaska.

In order to receive scholarship payment the attached report must be completed and sent to the CJA Task Force within 60 days of completion of training/conference attended.
