Scholarship Information

All scholarship applications can be sent electronically to law-financial-aid@luc.edu.  

Merit Scholarships: Since 1988, the School of Law has been able, through the generous grant from the University, to award a number of merit scholarships to highly qualified applicants selected by the Admission Committee. Students must be in good standing with the School of Law and meet specified criteria to have the scholarship renewed in subsequent years. No additional application is required.

Need-based Scholarships: A limited number of need-based scholarships are awarded to incoming students based on their financial need. A completed FAFSA and a Loyola University Chicago School of Law Financial Aid Application are required to be considered.

Special Scholarships: In most cases, scholarship awards made to entering JD students are renewed in the same amount for the second and third years of law school, as long as eligibility requirements are met. Scholarship assistance is not available for transfer students. Some awards are made to recognize outstanding achievement for other upper class JD students who did not receive scholarship assistance as first-year students. Scholarships will not increase as tuition increases.

For Fall 2013, more than 80 percent of the entering students received a scholarship.

All special scholarships applications require:

  1. Students complete the Free Application for Student Financial Assistance (FAFSA) in a timely fashion, so that the results are received to Loyola by the scholarship deadline. Since the FAFSA takes up to six weeks to process, we recommend filing the information no later than February 15.
  2. Specific requirements and/or an application form may need to be completed and returned by the deadline stated for each scholarship. All supporting documentation must also be received by that date. Only candidates admitted to the School of Law by the deadline date will be considered.
