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.
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. 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.
Scholarship information for all students is available on the University Scholarships Website, including information on awards offered by other WSU departments.
Students in the Master of Laws (LLM) program may also apply for scholarships through the Graduate School. Information can be found on the WSU Graduate School Web page.
