Deans Scholar and Dean Select Scholar Scholarships
Your completed application for admission serves as your application for scholarship. Scholarships are awarded to incoming first-year students based on the merit of their application. Applicants awarded a merit-based scholarship will be notified by the Office of Admissions at the time of their acceptance. Scholarships will be renewed each semester as long as the student remains in good academic standing.
Deans Honor Scholarship
Students ranked in the top 10% after completing their first year of law school at Saint Louis University School of Law and who were not awarded a merit based scholarship upon their admittance to the School of Law are eligible to receive the Dean's Honor Scholarship to recognize their academic success. The scholarship is only applicable for the fall/spring semesters. Scholarship amounts will vary from year to year based on funding and will be awarded based on the student's enrollment status as of July 1. Students enrolled in 12 or more hours will receive the scholarship for four semesters (2 years) and students enrolled for 11 or fewer hours will receive the scholarship for six semesters (3 years). The Deans Honor Scholarship will be renewed each semester as long as the student remains in good academic standing. Awards will be determined after first-year rankings are released in June, with notification letters sent out to students in July/August.
The School of Law was founded in 1843 when there were less than 20 law schools in the nation. To commemorate the significance of that year, the School of Law established the 1843 Scholars Program. This scholarship rewards a small group of students for their outstanding academic achievements. The program awards 10 full tuition scholarships to incoming students each year. The 1843 Scholarship covers tuition for three years of full-time study and includes annual increases in tuition. Scholarships will be renewed each semester as long as the student remains in good academic standing.
Each year, outstanding applicants are nominated by faculty and administration in the School of Law. Nominees must compose a response to the 1843 essay question, which is included with the nomination notification.
