More about our Mentoring Program:

Student members have the opportunity to be assigned to a mentor.  No one understands court reporting like another court reporter.  KCRA offers a mentor program as a way to bring court reporters and students together so that students can get guidance and encouragement that they need and so that today's court reporters can nurture the future of our profession.

Please join as a student member here.  If you wish to be assigned a mentor, indicate that request on your application form.

The Kansas Court Reporters Association is offering their annual scholarship to students who live or study court reporting in Kansas.  We believe the future of reporting in Kansas begins with its students, and, as such, this association is honored to support students of court reporting in Kansas who will someday enter the field of reporting as freelancers, officials, and CART and broadcast captioners.   Click here for more information and  to apply.
