Restricted Scholarships

restricted scholarships

Through the generosity of AUWCL friends and alumni, dozens of named scholarships are awarded annually to registered students ranging in amounts from $1,000 to upwards of $20,000 depending on funding levels in a given year. Selection criteria for these scholarships vary. Most commonly awards are based on financial need and/or academic achievement. Scholarship(s) specific to LL.M. students based on FAFSA application; no separate application required. MLS (online) and SJD students are not eligible to apply for Restricted Scholarships. 

The Restricted Scholarship application is announced by the AUWCL Financial Aid Office in the fall semester. The Restricted Scholarship application link and deadline are posted to the Forms webpage (when available). 

Complete the Restricted Scholarship application online, including short-answer questions and resume. 

To be considered for scholarships with financial need as a determining factor, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the AUWCL Institutional Need-Based Grant Application by the March 1 financial aid deadline. The application is accessed from the Forms webpage (when available). For need-based consideration, part-time (evening) JD students must submit the FAFSA.
