Outside Scholarships

The Law School Financial Aid Office has identified outside scholarships for which you might be eligible; here is just a sampling. We recommend that you visit free online scholarship search sites such as http://www.fastweb.com/ . AccessLex has recently established a database of scholarships specifically for law students. It can be found here https://www.accesslex.org/databank



We are phasing out the posting of outside scholarships here since most web-based search engines will give more comprehensive results.
