Law Scholarships and Grants

Federal regulations and university policy require the Office of Student Financial to consider scholarships as financial resources in determining financial need. Therefore, a scholarship award may reduce loan eligibility.  

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, FAFSA, is a requirement for any Wayne Law scholarship award.

Wayne Law Scholarships

Scholarships and fellowships specifically for Wayne Law students are described on our Internal Scholarships Web page.

The Law School Admissions Office considers entering students for Wayne Law scholarship awards as part of the admission process, and a separate application is not required.  


Other Scholarship Opportunities for Law Students 

Wayne Law students often qualify for merit awards from external organizations. Other resources include veteran education benefits, American Indian tuition waivers, the No Worker Left Behind program, and AmeriCorps.
