General Scholarships & Grants

Over 80% of students receive some award in form of a law school scholarship or grant.  The law school usually provides one scholarship or grant that is of the best benefit to the student.   Students who were not awarded in previous years will receive reconsideration if they have served in leadership positions while in law school and have a minimum 3.0 GPA.

All law school scholarships and grants are awarded annually for the upcoming academic year (fall and spring semesters). Typically, no awards are available for the summer semesters.
