Myers Scholarship

The Myers Law Scholarship is AUWCL’s most prestigious award and provides one-year scholarships to matriculated full-time JD students (one or two annually) who show academic promise and demonstrate financial need. Scholarships are funded up to 125 percent of tuition. Applicants for this scholarship must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the AUWCL Institutional Need-Based Grant Application by the financial aid deadline, in order to determine the financial need of the applicant.

The Myers Law Scholarship also requires an additional application, including a personal statement and resume. Application procedures and selection criteria are announced on MyWCL and in the WCL Daily email early in the fall semester with the application deadline typically 2-3 weeks after the first announcement. Awardees are expected to attend the black-tie Myers Society Dinner.

The Myers Law Scholarship application is announced by the AUWCL Financial Aid Office early in the fall semester with the deadline typically in early to mid-September. The exact dates can fluctuate annually with the timeframe generally remaining the same.

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the AUWCL Institutional Need-Based Grant Application by the financial aid deadline in order to determine the financial need of the applicant.
