The law school was successful in reaching its goal of raising $500,000 to support student scholarships for the Dean’s Scholarship Initiative. The Dean’s Scholarship Initiative is a 3-year effort to raise $500,000 for each of the next three years to increase overall funding for student scholarships. USD School of Law alumni and friends donated a total of $515,496 to support the three goals of the Dean’s Scholarship Initiative, including:
- $250,000 for Alumni Honor Scholarships to attract the highest quality students to attend USD School of Law;
- $150,000 for Alumni Leadership Scholarships to retain top students and reward those who show potential for leadership; and
- $100,000 for Alumni Summer Legal Work Grants to subsidize non-paying summer internships in the legal field.
Fundraising for the Dean’s Scholarship Initiative will continue over the next two years. If you are interested in supporting this effort, you can make a gift online or contact the Office of Development and Alumni Relations at (619) 260-4692.
