Notices are routinely received from organizations that offer grants, scholarships or low-interest loans to law students. These notices are posted in the WCL Docket as information is received and added to the Outside Scholarship webpage (www.wcl.american.edu/outsidescholarships).

You are encouraged to contact your local bar association, civic organizations, and groups (including employers) to which you or your family belong to inquire about the availability of assistance.
