Financial Aid & Scholarships

First-year students are strongly encouraged not to work while attending law school. The U requires a completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid form and a need analysis before considering eligibility for need-based, University-administered aid.

First year students are eligible for merit and need based scholarships from the College of Law. Merit scholarships are awarded in March and sent separately from the admissions decision. All accepted candidates are considered on the basis of their applications. Need based scholarships require a separate application that is mailed to all admitted students. These scholarships are typically awarded in late spring. For information on average awards for merit and need based scholarships, please click here. There are also a number of privately funded merit based scholarships, fellowships and stipend programs available to second and third year students. For more information, please click here.
