Dean’s Scholarship for Excellence
Dean’s Scholarship are awarded to new students at the time an offer of admission is made. The awards are based primarily on exceptional academic achievement and professional promise. The scholarship committee also takes need into consideration for those who qualify on merit. There is no GPA requirement to maintain the scholarship; they are automatically renewed each year as long as the recipient is enrolled and in good standing.
There is not a separate scholarship application for the Dean’s Scholarships; however, one may submit an optional scholarship statement as part of their application to the law school.
The Dean’s Scholarship is funded in large part by generous donors, many of them alumni who once benefited from scholarships themselves.
