Applicants are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships by the Admissions Office. Scholarship awards range from partial tuition to full tuition. Full-tuition scholarships include mandatory fees and a stipend for books. Applicants interested in scholarships should submit their admissions application as early as possible -- preferably before January 1st. No additional documentation is required. Students who have been selected for a scholarship will be notified by the Admissions Office.
The scholarships below are Loyola-specific programs. Other programs exist, however, and all applicants are encouraged to conduct their own search for scholarships. Some of the most reputable free scholarship search engines are Fastweb and Scholarships. Another resource, Admissions Dean, provides a database specifically for law school scholarships.
Please note that our policy on scholarship renewal requirements is reviewed annually, and in recent years has changed. Students in the 2012 and 2013 class will be able to retain their merit scholarship as long as they maintain a 3.2 cumulative GPA – which is equivalent to being in approximately the top 50% of the class. However, once a scholarship is forfeited due to failure to meet the renewal criteria, it will not be renewed in any subsequent year even if the GPA requirement is met. Data for the entering class of 2012 scholarship retention will be available in July 2013.
