MERIT SCHOLARSHIPS

ONU Law awards merit-based scholarships to highly-qualified students each year. These awards recognize exceptional students who possess outstanding academic credentials, diverse backgrounds and leadership abilities that indicate the applicant’s potential to excel in all aspects of the law school experience. Once submitted, a student’s application is automatically considered for merit-based aid. Scholarships range from $5,000 to $29,000. Scholarships are based on factors such as:

  • LSAT score and undergraduate GPA
  • Quality of courses taken
  • Employment experience
  • Community involvement
  • Extracurricular activities

 

PRIORITY SCHOLARSHIP DEADLINE - MAY 1

To be at the top of our list for merit-based scholarships, students should submit their application by May 1. Applications completed after this date may have a more difficult time receiving maximum consideration for our full range of scholarship offerings. 

 

ONU LAW SCHOLARSHIP PRACTICES

ONU Law has a long history of competitive and fair scholarship practices, and awards a significant amount of scholarships every year.  After their first year, students have the opportunity to be re-evaluated for scholarships for their second and third years. Students who received awards for their first year and remain in good academic standing are not in jeopardy of losing their merit-based aid.
