The College of Law awards over $2 million dollars annually in scholarship and fellowship support. Scholarships are awarded to admitted applicants in order to attract and retain an academically talented and diverse student body. Amounts range from $1,500 to full tuition.
Scholarships are renewable for each of the three years of law school as long as the recipient maintains good academic standing (defined as a minimum 2.0 grade point average). In fact, over the last five years 100% of scholarships awarded by the College of Law have been renewed.
To receive consideration an applicant must simply complete the online admission application. Beginning in early winter scholarship decisions are made on a rolling basis, typically two to four weeks after an applicant receives admission. Scholarship notifications are sent by mail.
In addition to scholarships, renewable fellowships are offered to first year students by the Urban Morgan Institute for Human Rights and the Corporate Law Center. The Glenn M. Weaver Institute of Law and Psychiatry offers fellowships to upper level students only.
New scholarship applications from students who are entering the second and third years are considered to the extent that funds are available after scholarship renewals are completed.
