Endowed Scholarships and Loan Forgiveness Funds

Our students are the heart of Texas Law. Few things have greater long-term impact on student success than the financial aid we are able to offer. Scholarships and loan forgiveness programs draw a robust, diverse, and talented applicant pool. And this support reduces the financial toll of a law school education.

 

The Power of Endowment

The power of a named endowment is that the gift is leveraged through investment to provide a scholarship each year, meaning the gift is never exhausted.

$250,000 Grows to $370,000 in 20 years producing $240,000* for students *Calculated with 6% growth rate and 4% spending rate

Named, endowed Scholarships or Loan Forgiveness Funds may be established in the name of the donor or someone the donor wishes to honor.

Gifts creating a named, endowed scholarship or loan forgiveness fund may be fulfilled through pledge payments made over a maximum five-year period.

Loan Forgiveness Endowment Levels

Loan Forgiveness funds enable the Law School to fulfill its commitment to students seeking careers in public service.
