Dean's Scholarships are renewable each academic year, so long as a student:

  1. Maintains a 2.5 GPA
  2. Does not commit any Honor Code violations

Upper-Class Scholarships

The College of Law has revised the application process for upper-class scholarships. In the spring semester of each academic year, students may apply for these annual and endowed scholarships. Applications will only be accepted through the online portalThe application period begins in March.

Below is a list of scholarships for students entering their 2nd, 3rd and 4th years.

Students will be able to specify on the application the specific scholarship(s) for which they would like to apply. The scholarships are categorized based on the respective donors’ established criteria, such as division in law school (civil/common), planned career, geographic background and/or ethnicity, among others. Please note that there are GPA requirements for most of the scholarships.

Additionally, there is a large category of scholarships under the General category. ALL APPLICANTS will be considered for the scholarships in the General category, so there is no need to include them in the application. The amount of funds available are based on returns from the endowed scholarship accounts, therefore limited funds are available. Scholarship awards are generally in the $2,000-$6,000 range. Not every applicant will receive funding.
