Scholarship Opportunities

We award merit-based scholarships to outstanding LL.M. applicants. Typical awards range from $5,000 to $30,000. All applicants are considered for merit-based scholarships and no separate form is required. No special application is required, but applicants may be required to provide financial information to determine the award. Scholarship awards are based on several criteria, including: 1) academic performance, 2) professional experience, 3) financial need, and 4) other professional and personal experience (e.g., volunteer activities and initiatives demonstrating exceptional leadership skills).

Non-U.S. residents usually do not qualify for U.S. government-sponsored student financial aid. However, many privately funded scholarship sources are available to international students. Students are strongly encouraged to begin the scholarship search as soon as possible in order to meet application deadlines.

Here's a list of our current scholarship opportunities:
