The law school continually seeks to develop new sources of non-loan funds to help defray the cost of legal education. Merit-based scholarships are available to JD students.

All applications received will automatically be considered for a standard scholarship, without the need for an additional scholarship application or statement.

Please note: scholarship and fellowship awards will be posted to student accounts and appear on Patriot Web after students are registered for fall classes in late July or early August.

Fellowship Programs:

The Robert A. Levy Fellowships in Law & Liberty

Created through the generosity of Dr. Robert A. Levy, a 1994 graduate of the law school, this generous fellowship program seeks to encourage young scholars to enter the academic field of law and economics by sponsoring their pursuit of a JD degree. Fellowship grants cover tuition and fees and provide a substantial stipend for up to three years. To be eligible for a Levy Fellowship, an applicant must either (1) have earned a PhD from an accredited university in economics, or a closely related field such as finance or political science; or (2) have successfully completed all course work in one of the above fields and have passed the general exam for a PhD from an accredited university.

School of Law Fellowships

A small number of fellowship grants are awarded to outstanding incoming JD students each year based upon the strength of their applications for admission.
