The Copyright Society of the USA, a non-profit organization established in 1953, is devoted to copyright law awareness and education. With headquarters in New York City and over 1,000 members nationwide, CSUSA’s mission is to foster interest in and advance the study and understanding of copyright law in literature, music, art, theater, motion picture, television, computer software, architecture, and other works of authorship, and their distribution through both traditional and new media.

A limited number of scholarships are available to judges, law clerks, law professors, law students, attorneys, pro bono attorneys and paralegals who work for nonprofit organizations, legal service organizations or government agencies, recent graduates not yet employed, and unemployed attorneys who must take CLE courses in order to meet their state requirements.

All requests must be made in writing. No more than three requests per person will be considered in any one year. Requests should describe the applicant’s interest in the topic and justification for a waiver or reduction of fees. If approved, the scholarship will result in a waiver or reduction of the course fees for the specific program.

Scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Approval will be based on need and funds available. Scholarships are not transferable.

To apply, please send your request, in writing, prior to the reservation deadline. All requests for scholarships should be emailed to kaitland[at]
