Scholarships are provided through the generosity of alumni and friends of Texas Law and are awarded based on scholastic merit and/or financial need. All incoming students (residents, nonresidents, and international students) are eligible for scholarship consideration and if awarded as an incoming student, the scholarship will renew automatically for the second and third year of law school enrollment provided the student meets minimum performance standards and enrolled full-time at Texas Law in the JD program.

Texas Law offers scholarships in amounts ranging from $1,000 to a limited number of full tuition/fee awards each year. On average, more than 92% of all students have been awarded scholarships in the last three years.

Like scholarships, grants are financial awards that students do not have to pay back. In general, they are funded by institutional or government sources (e.g., Texas Public Educational Grant Program) and are typically based on a student’s financial need. Because grants are typically awarded to students based on information provided on their FAFSA, we strongly encourage students to submit a FAFSA even if they do not intend to borrow federal loans as they may be eligible for need-based grants that require a FAFSA submission.
