By visiting CUA Law, students will receive at least a $1,000 scholarship and be eligible for other scholarships. The $1,000 Visit scholarship is only available to applicants who visit CUA Law between 11/7/16 and 4/12/17 and are planning to attend CUA Law in the 2017-18 school year. The $1000 Visit scholarship is only applicable during the 2017-18 school year for newly enrolled students. For further details please contact the Admissions office at (202) 319-5151.
CUA Alumni may nominate entering first-year or transfer students for a $1,000 Alumni award renewable for up to four years. Completed Alumni Scholarship Recommendation Forms must be submitted to the Law School Admissions Office and must be received along with all other materials submitted in support of a complete application. Once an admissions decision and scholarship recommendation have been made, adjustments are not possible. Click here for the form.
Merit-Based Scholarships are awarded at the time of admission for both first-year and transfer students. Please note that there are Full Scholarships, as well as Partial Scholarships available. Scholarships are awarded by the Admissions Office and decisions are based on a review of the applicant’s entire application file. LSAT scores and prior Grade Point Averages are an important, but not exclusive component in the awarding process. No separate “aid application” is required for consideration for merit-based scholarships.
In general, CUA does not offer need-based grants or scholarships. However, students are encouraged to utilized federal student loan programs, if needed. Details are available on the Apply for Aid Checklist Page for first year students.
Note: Conditional scholarship retention data is not available because Columbus School of Law does not award conditional scholarships as defined under ABA Standard 509(d). Therefore, we do not post an ABA Conditional Scholarship Retention Worksheet. A scholarship for which remaining “in good standing” is required, is not considered a “conditional scholarship” by the ABA.
