The National Administrative Law Judiciary Foundation (NALJF) is the public interest arm of the National Association of Administrative Law Judiciary. One of the Foundation's major purposes is to promote the study and research of administrative law and distribute this knowledge to the administrative judiciary and the public. To further its mission, NALJF has endowed a Fellowship to encourage research and scholarship for improving administrative justice. In addition, NALJF also provides funding for the Neil Alexander scholarship, which assists NAALJ members to attend the National Judicial College in Reno, Nevada. The policies and application for the 2011 Neil Alexander Scholarship can be found at the following link: NAALJ-NJC Scholarship.
