1L Scholarships

UDM Law awards scholarships to incoming and returning students who have demonstrated success during their undergraduate studies or while enrolled at UDM Law.

All incoming students who submit an application for admission by February 1 will be considered for a renewable scholarship. Scholarship offers are generally extended at the same time as the offer of admission.

Merit Scholarship Information

MERIT SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION FOR J.D. CANDIDATES

UDM Law awards scholarships to first-year J.D. students based on demonstrated success, including their undergraduate grade point averages, LSAT scores, and other accomplishments. The Scholarship Committee reviews all admitted applicants for scholarship eligibility, and recipients are notified of their award when they are admitted to the Law School. First-year renewable and one-year scholarship awards recognize not only prior achievements but the potential for success at UDM Law. Applicants who apply by February 1 are given priority for these scholarships. Awards after this deadline are limited by the availability of funds.

The Dean’s Scholarships for Excellence award renewable scholarships at the 20%, 40%, 60%, and 75% level for students with demonstrated success. Scholarship decisions are based on the following considerations:

  • Excellence in undergraduate studies
  • LSAT scores indicating a strong potential for success (generally 150 or higher)
  • Demonstrated ability to contribute to our law school community

The scholarships translate into the following discounts and tuition balances:
