Law Student Programs

The Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation’s Law Student Programs aim to generate interest among students from the Foundation’s Constituent Law Schools (CLS) in mineral law and related areas, increase their awareness about the Foundation’s specialized educational opportunities, and encourage their involvement in the Foundation’s educational programs.

Student Attendance Programs

These programs, coordinated with the active engagement of the Foundation’s CLS Trustees, support attendance by deserving students at Foundation programs. Subject to space and funding availability, Foundation support can include waived registration fees, course materials, and reimbursement of pre-approved expenses for transportation and accommodations.

Scholarship Recipient Attendance Program

This program enables RMMLF and Joe Rudd scholars to attend an Annual or Special Institute in the year following their award.

CLS Law Student Attendance Program

The Foundation can make available up to $3,000 per calendar year to each CLS to support student attendance at Foundation programs.

Discretionary Law Student Attendance Program

The Foundation may provide support to students from its CLS to attend Foundation programs when financial need or other special circumstances exist. The Foundation may, in limited cases, also provide support to deserving students from law schools other than CLS to attend Foundation Institutes and select Short Courses. For more information, complete the application and contact the Foundation.

Student Networking Program

This program supports collaborative events in the CLS among student organizations, trustees, law professors, local law firms, and other Foundation members. These events are intended to foster education, generate interest in mineral law and related areas, and increase awareness about, and involvement with, the Foundation’s educational programs and opportunities (up to $1,000 per CLS per calendar year).
