Law Scholarships and Grants

Wayne Law offers a variety of scholarship opportunities for students.  

Federal regulations and university policy require the Wayne Law Financial Aid Office to consider scholarships as a financial resource in determining financial need. A scholarship award may reduce any loan eligibility you may have thereby reducing your loan indebtedness.
A completed 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.

Students are considered for Wayne Law scholarship awards at admission and a separate application is not required. In addition, the Wayne Law Dean of Students Office provides scholarship information for all students at an Annual Informational Scholarship Fair each fall semester. 

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.
