Law School Scholarship Finder

Each year, law students collectively take on millions of dollars in additional debt--in some cases, completely unnecessarily. Why? Because they could have paid for part or all of their law school classes if only they had applied for the hundreds of private scholarships that exist specifically for law students. That’s unfortunate, because most law students never even hear about these scholarship opportunities.

At AdmissionsDean, we are trying to change that by building the largest free database of private law school scholarships on the Internet. We've organized our Scholarship Finder by demographic and topical categories, as well as by specific law schools that offer private scholarships to their own students. While we constantly update our Scholarship Finder, please email us if you come across a scholarship we’ve missed and we’ll add it to our database.

So don’t stop at the financial aid package your law school offers -- there are thousands of more dollars that can be yours if you ask nicely! Try our Law School Scholarship Finder today so you can earn some free scholarship money and keep your debt load to a minimum. And when you win that scholarship, remember: you learned about it here first!
