Scholarships and Awards
Lewis & Clark Law School awards scholarship aid to a significant percentage of each year’s entering class in the form of our merit-based Dean’s Scholarships and to current upper-division students in a variety of different awards.
Retention data for merit-based awards can be found here.

Scholarships for Entering Students
Scholarships & Awards for Current Upper-Division Students
Outside scholarships are those that are awarded by an organization other than Lewis & Clark, but that may be used to help with costs incurred as a law student at Lewis & Clark. Outside scholarships that we are currently aware of are listed here:
Law Firm Scholarships: Many law firms offer small scholarships to law students. There are too many to list here, and we cannot always confirm they are legitimate. We recommend searching the web for “scholarships from law firms” to find these, as well as reading the terms of them carefully.
Veterans Education Benefits
Those receiving Veteran Education Benefits should review our Veterans Services website then contact Caitlin Hansen, the veterans benefits coordinator for law students at 503-768-7332 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
State Bar Associations – several states have scholarships for residents of their state that can be applied to ANY school one attends (in or out of that state). Please check with individual state bars and ask about scholarship opportunities.

Please note that if you receive an outside scholarship, you should report it to our Student Financial Services office. If you notify us after receiving your financial aid package, your award may be adjusted.
