We are committed to those students who have received their undergraduate degrees from other Jesuit colleges and Universities, which carry on the Jesuit tradition of educating the whole person.
Gonzaga Law is a private, Jesuit-affiliated school of law in Spokane, Washington that offers an experience-based academic program that produces graduates who are pursuing justice and finding solutions to legal challenges — today and in the future.
As a Jesuit school, Gonzaga Law builds on the principles of Jesuit education:
- Care of the person
- Liberal arts
- Service of justice
- Anticipatory joy
We are pleased to announce a new scholarship program for those with undergraduate degrees from other Jesuit colleges and universities beginning in the 2017 academic year. At Gonzaga Law, students can earn their J.D. in either of our programs:
- 24 months through our Accelerated J.D.* program or
- 36 months through our Traditional J.D. program
- Minimum LSAT score of 154
- Commitment to academic excellence
- Hold an undergraduate degree from another Jesuit college or university
Scholarship amount will be determined by the Office of Admissions. Awards generally range between $10,000 and $20,000 annually, but may vary.
Requirements for Renewability:
- Maintain a cumulative 2.75 GPA
- Willingness to serve as a mentor for other graduates from Jesuit colleges or universities.
Prospective law students who are interested in the St. Ignatius Scholarship at Gonzaga University School of Law should submit a short essay (no more than one page in length) explaining how their undergraduate Jesuit education has prepared them for law school. Essay applications are due no later than February 1, 2018. Essays should be submitted to Dr. Susan Lee, Director of Admissions.
*Gonzaga Law is one of only a select few law schools in the nation that offers an accelerated, fully accredited JD program. The program requires the same number of credits as the traditional 3-year program but instead of taking a break from studies during the summers, students in the accelerated program take a full load of classes in the summers.
