New York Law School encourages students to explore
and apply for all applicable scholarships. The Office of Admissions and
We suggest that you apply for any and all external scholarships if you meet the eligibility requirements; receiving an external scholarship could reduce your alternative loan borrowing. Remember, the less you borrow, the less you'll have to repay.
We encourage you to look outside of the law school for scholarship opportunities. The following is a list of on-line search engines that you may use to begin your search (the search engines are free).
In addition, we will post external scholarship opportunities as they become available:
ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarship Fund - Deadline March 1, 2014. Awards $5,000 of financial assistance annually to each scholarship recipient attending an ABA-accredited law school. Twenty awards will be made to first-year students (across the nation) and may be renewable for two additional years (totaling $15,000). The scholarship is meant to encourage and enable students who would not otherwise have the financial ability to attend law school and recipients are selected based on their qualifictions and not the law school to which they plan to attend.
