External Scholarships

Scholarship Sponsors: If your organization would like to submit a scholarship for posting on our External Scholarships page, keep in mind that we only post scholarships that are available to our law students and which are related to law and offered by relevant organizations. If your scholarship is exclusively available to law students, please email financialaid@law.virginia.edu with a link to your website’s scholarship page, which should include information such as the scholarship deadline, award amount, and eligibility requirements.

The following external scholarships are listed by deadline. More information is provided at the links. Contact the sponsor if you need additional details.
