The Advanced Degree Programs Office offers selective merit- or citizenship-based scholarships which are awarded to outstanding admitted LL.M. students each year. Scholarship decisions are made at the time of admission. Only the African Legal Impact and Matching Consideration Scholarships require a separate application; for all other scholarships there is no separate application needed, and all eligible admitted applicants will be considered. Award decisions will be emailed to the email address listed in the application form.
Scholarship awards are applied to LL.M. tuition fees directly through CalCentral and cannot be used for travel, housing, or any other related costs. For students in the LL.M. traditional and professional tracks, half of the scholarship award will be applied each semester. For students in the LL.M. hybrid option, 25% will be applied in spring, 50% in summer, and 25% in fall.
The Law scholarships are worth over $20,000.
