LLM Scholarships

General Information:

The Center for Animal Law Studies is pleased to be able to offer scholarships for domestic and international Animal Law LLM students for the 2019-2020 academic year. To learn more about each scholarship, please read the detailed descriptions below. All applicants who provide the optional 1-3 page Statement of Interest for Scholarship Support along with their application are automatically considered for every scholarship they are eligible for. These statements may include anything the applicant believes relevant for the program to know when making its scholarship determinations. Please note that some scholarships may be region- and/or area-specific; thus, all applicants interested in these specific scholarships should tailor their Statement of Purpose and Statement of Interest for Scholarship Support to indicate their interest in and eligibility for them.

Unless stated otherwise, all of our Animal Law LLM scholarships come with full-tuition and law student health insurance, which does not include dental or vision coverage. Certain scholarships automatically include housing and a partial campus meal plan. In cases where applicants are offered scholarships that do not automatically include housing and meal plan, these may be covered on a case-by-case basis by the applicant’s demonstration of need in their Statement of Interest for Scholarship Support.

At this time, none of our scholarships cover additional course costs, such as airfare, books, and other activities.

In addition to the scholarships listed below, all well-qualified applicants are automatically considered for financial support in the form of a tuition reduction.
