Merit-Based Scholarships

Merit-based College of Law Scholarships are awarded to selected incoming first-year J.D. students during the admission process. All prospective J.D. students (whether US citizens, permanent residents or international applicants) are considered for merit-based scholarships. In order to maintain merit-based scholarships from year-to-year, current law students must remain enrolled and in good academic standing with the College of Law. Law students can use their merit scholarships throughout their enrollment – even during the completion of an approved joint degree.

Need-Based Scholarships

Need-based College of Law Scholarships provide tuition grants and have been made available, in part, through the generosity of alumni and donor contributions. These funds assist residential students with reducing part of the cost of tuition. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, annually and have demonstrated need or meet other qualifications to be considered for these scholarship awards.
