Scholarships for Incoming Students

All admitted students are automatically considered for scholarship and fellowship awards.

The priority deadline for scholarship consideration is February 1.  Applicants are encouraged to apply early in the admissions cycle for maximum scholarship consideration.  Scholarship offers are generally extended at the same time as the offer of admission.


    Dean’s Scholarships for Excellence

    Dean's Scholarships for Excellence are awarded to incoming students in recognition of their academic accomplishments and potential for success at Detroit Mercy Law.  Dean's Scholarships automatically renew each year, so long as the student remains in good academic standing and adheres to the Honor Code and Community Standards Code, as set forth in the Student Handbook.



    Fellowships are awarded to incoming students who have demonstrated excellence prior to law school through academics, leadership, professionalism, and service.  The Scholarship Committee selects students for fellowship consideration.  Selected students are invited to interview for the Fellows Award.  Fellows receive full-tuition support, alumni mentors, and leadership and service opportunities throughout law school.
