University Academic Scholarships

Scholarships are awarded to outstanding entering first-year students with superior academic records and LSAT scores. These scholarships are awarded as tuition waivers and are renewed automatically if the required grade point average is maintained. After the freshman year, students may apply to the Faculty Scholarship Selection Committee to be considered for one-year awards based on a combination of merit and need. Loyola may conclude that gift and grant aid from other sources precludes or limits a student’s eligibility for scholarships administered by the College of Law. Unless otherwise specified, scholarship awards shall not exceed actual tuition. The College of Law administers the following scholarships.
