Campus Student Scholarships
Through the generosity of donors and Loyola University Chicago, several campus-based scholarships and fellowships may be available to students studying health law. They are subject to continued funding each year.
Health Law Fellowship for LLM Students
Each year the Beazley Institute awards 1-2 fellowships to full-time incoming LLM students for the campus-based program only. Fellow duties may include conducting research for faculty members; authoring scholarly articles; contributing to the Institute's blog; overseeing special events and projects; representing the Institute at professional meetings and associations; serving as teaching assistants and/or tutors to students; and participating in health law conferences and events. Fellowship compensation includes a tuition scholarship (ranging from 50%-100% of tuition costs) and a stipend.
The fellowship committee notifies applicants of decisions by the end of May. To apply, please submit a writing sample, resume, and cover letter detailing health law interest and experiences by no later than May 1 to the fellowship committee via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Receipt of submissions will be confirmed via email within 2 business days.
Please address all correspondence to:
LLM Fellowship Committee
Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy
Loyola University Chicago School of Law
25 East Pearson Street
Chicago, Illinois 60611
Fellowship applicants must apply and be accepted into the campus-based LLM in Health Law degree program at Loyola before his/her fellowship application will be reviewed. Fellowship applications must be clearly marked and received via email by May 1 so they can be sent to the committee for review. A fellow's performance will be evaluated each semester and continuation of the award will be contingent upon maintenance of a 3.0 grade point average.
Health Law Fellowships for Entering JD Students
Each year the Beazley Institute selects up to eight individuals entering the School of Law's JD program who we believe demonstrate the potential to be both leaders within the School as well as outstanding health lawyers in their careers. Fellows are provided with a stipend to defray a portion of tuition costs during their first year of study. Fellows are enrolled in the specialized health law legal writing section in their first year of law school, and asked to serve as ambassadors for the health law program. Most fellows find that the contacts that they make with faculty and practitioners during their time at Loyola are an invaluable benefit to starting their legal careers. All applications are due by March 1. The fellowship committee plans to notify applicants of decisions by early April. Click here to download an application.
Health Law Fellowships for Upperclass JD Students
Each year the Beazley Institute selects several health law student fellows entering their second, third, or fourth year of law school. The Health Law Fellows work closely with faculty and staff as they work toward earning a Health Law Certificate. One fellow selected each year will serve to specifically support the mission of the Health Justice Project clinic and programs. Other fellows attend and assist in planning health law events, submit newsletter or journal articles, and represent the Institute at community events. Please note: fellows who receive their awards their second year of study will need to reapply the following year. The fellowship application deadline is April 15. The fellowship committee plans to notify applicants of decisions by the end of May. Click here to download the application.
