All first-year scholarships have merit requirements, including, but not limited to, your LSAT score and undergraduate GPA. Once admitted, applicants whose application was received by March 1 are automatically considered for the Dean's Academic Scholarship. If you satisfy the requirements, you will be notified at the time of your acceptance of the amount of your scholarship eligibility. Creighton University School of Law also has two additional scholarship opportunities: the Frances M. Ryan Diversity Scholarship and the A.A. and Ethel Yossem Scholarship (for students of the Jewish faith). If you would like to be considered for the Ryan or Yossem Scholarships, please check the appropriate boxes on your Application for Admission.
All second-year and third-year students must reapply for scholarships even if they received a scholarship for their first and/or second year. Students who were not awarded a scholarship during their first and/or second years, who believe they will obtain a cumulative law school class rank in the top fifteen percent of the class may apply for a scholarship for the following year. Applications are emailed to students in March/April. Students who are awarded a scholarship upon acceptance must rank in the top 40 percent of their class in order to maintain the scholarship at the current level. This class ranking will be measured at the end of the Spring semester.
Part-time students are generally not eligible for scholarships. Students in combined degree programs other than GOAL, must enroll for at least ten law school credits per semester in order to retain their scholarship.
