A limited number of merit scholarships are available to each entering class. All admitted students are automatically considered for a merit scholarship and no separate application is required. Scholarship amounts vary in amount and number. Scholarships are for one academic year, only, and are not renewable. If you are an out of state resident and receive a merit scholarship, you will receive an in-state tuition waiver.
The following factors are considered when awarding merit scholarships:

  • Applicant's law school academic record
  • If applicable, applicant's TOEFL or IELTS score
  • Applicant's recommendation letters
  • Applicant's personal statement
  • Other relevant qualifications

Scholarships are paid in two equal installments, one each for the fall and the spring semester. No payment is made for summer enrollment. The scholarship is applied to the student's university financial account.
