Merit-Based ScholarshipsThe School of Law annually awards more than $2 million in renewable scholarships to entering students. Scholarships are based upon scholastic merit, including undergraduate grades and performance on the LSAT.
All entering applicants are considered for scholarships by the Admissions Committee.
Most scholarships require a GPA of 2.75 for renewability and some require a 3.2. All scholarship renewability requirements are explained in the award letter.
100% Tuition Thomas More Scholarship
New students should also consider applying for the Thomas More Scholarship, a 100% tuition scholarship for students interested in dedicating their career to public service. Applications are separate from the admissions application, and are due by February 1st of each year.

Students who receive private scholarships from outside sources must report these scholarships to the Financial Aid Office.
We are required to include all outside scholarships as part of your financial aid award and must also count them toward meeting financial need.
In cases where the receipt of an outside scholarships impacts a student’s financial aid award, we reduce the loan program rather than reducing other scholarships.
Once you have notified us of scholarships you have received, we will adjust your award and send you a revised financial aid award notice.
