Scholarship Opportunities

We offer a limited number of internal scholarships for our most qualified applicants. To be considered, applicants are encouraged to submit their application for admission to the LL.M. Program as soon as possible after November 1st.

Since the number of internal scholarships we offer is limited, prospective and admitted international LL.M. students are strongly advised to apply for financial aid and scholarships from their home countries. There are multiple international student scholarship databases such as eduPASS and International Student Organization that offer a list of opportunities. Though by no means comprehensive, below is a list of external scholarship opportunities that are country-specific or eligibility criteria-specific.

Prospective LL.M. students interested in applying for a Fulbright Foreign Student Scholarship should expect the process to take 12-18 months.
