Donor-Supported Scholarships for Incoming Students

These scholarships are made possible by the generosity of alumni and friends of the law school. All incoming students are automatically considered for these scholarships, so no separate application is necessary. Most donor-supported scholarships fund all or part of a student’s existing merit scholarship and include an opportunity to connect personally with the sponsoring donor.  Most donor named scholarships are awarded every year.
