    USD School of Law Grants

    The Law School considers entering students for a number of need-based partial tuition grants. These awards are based on the applicant's financial need, academic promise, potential for service to the community and for contribution to the diversity of the USD community.  In 2017-18, the award totals between $10,000 and $25,000. This scholarship may be awarded as a 1-year scholarship or it may be granted as a renewable award for subsequent years. To be considered, applicants must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on an annual basis and continue to establish financial need. Students will be notified in writing at the time the award is made whether they are receiving a 1-year or renewable award.

    Academic Achievement Scholarships

    After the first year, scholarships for varying amounts may be available to top students. Criteria used for these awards includes academic performance, rank in class and existing scholarship commitments.  The number of awards and scholarship amounts may vary year to year based on fund availability.
