Endowed Scholarships and Loan Forgiveness

Endowed Scholarships and Loan Forgiveness

Students are at the heart of UVA Law, and the reason scholarships and loan forgiveness are a top priority. Financial aid is key to recruiting diverse and talented students, removing barriers to entering the legal profession, and enabling careers in public service.

Financial aid is almost always a significant — if not decisive — factor when admitted students of the highest caliber choose UVA Law. The resources to provide such aid are critical to the school’s future.
