JD Admissions

Scholarship Programs

New York University School of Law provides scholarships in amounts up to full tuition for three years of study to JD students who successfully meet the requirements of our Scholarship Programs. Scholars will benefit not only from generous financial support, but also from a fully integrated academic and professional program that will begin before their first day of class and will continue throughout their legal careers.

Applicants who wish to be considered for the following Scholarship Programs must complete their applications by January 1 and must have a complete law school report ready to be requested by the Office of Admissions no later than January 1: AnBryce Scholarship Program, ASPIRE Cybersecurity Scholarship, Furman Academic Scholars Program, Furman Public Policy Scholarship Program, Latino Institute for Human Rights Scholarship, Mitchell Jacobson Leadership Program in Law & BusinessRoot-Tilden-Kern Public Interest Scholarship Program, and the Sinsheimer Service Scholarship.

In addition to the Scholarship Programs outlined above, the Law School also awards Dean's Scholarships which are merit-and/or need-based grants in amounts up to full tuition. As part of the Dean's Scholarship program, the Scholarship Committee awards the Vanderbilt Scholarship for a small number of enrolling students who demonstrate exceptional merit. Vanderbilt Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic excellence, professional and other extra-curricular accomplishments, and potential to become a successful leader in the legal profession. All students admitted to NYU School of Law are considered for Dean's and Vanderbilt Scholarships through the financial aid process. Admitted students must complete the Need Access financial aid application in order to be considered for these scholarships.
