In 1985, the National Criminal Defense College was established under the leadership of Deryl Dantzler and she held the position of Dean for thirty years. In honor of her devotion to the College, The Deryl Dantzler Scholarship Fund was created to continue the thirty-year tradition of offering scholarships to participants in need.
Many have donated to this Fund and to other scholarship funds in the past. These donations have made it possible for so many students to attend the NCDC Trial Practice Institute who might not otherwise have had the opportunity.
In fact, each year a substantial number of students attend the TPI on full or partial scholarships made possible by our donors. These students take the lessons learned during their time at NCDC back to their firms, their offices, and most importantly, their clients.
