ONU Grant Awards
Each year, the Ohio Northern University College of Law makes available a limited number of need-based grants to assist economically disadvantaged students with the funding of their legal education. Grant awards are renewed annually so long as the recipient remains in good academic standing (2.0GPA) and continues to have financial need.
For the past three years, we awarded more than $4 million dollars in scholarships & grants to all three classes. Students who have excelled academically may be eligible for merit based scholarships. Scholarships are awarded primarily on the basis of academic achievements and range between $5,000-$32,000. The number and amounts of financial aid awards are based on the number and qualifications of applicants, the availability of funds, and other factors and are subject to change without notice. Scholarships are based on factors such as:
- LSAT score and Undergraduate GPA
- Quality or courses taken
- Employment experience
- Community involvement
- Extracurricular activities
Renewal of Scholarships
Scholarship awards will be renewed annually if the recipient maintains a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher and remains in good academic standing.
Scholarships for Continuing Students
The College of Law awards scholarships to students who excel during their first year in law school and who have not received other scholarships or other college assistance. These awards are based on the cumulative first-year GPA in amounts linked to their level of performance.
