Dean’s Scholarships for UDM Law First-year Students
UDM Law awards scholarships to first-year Law students based on their academic and LSAT credentials. The Scholarship Committee reviews all admitted applicants for scholarship eligibility. First-year renewable and one-year scholarship awards recognize not only prior academic performance but the potential for success at UDM Law.
Dean’s renewable scholarships range in value from 20 to 100 percent. To retain a renewable scholarship after Terms I and II of the first year, a student must fulfill the following conditions:
- The student has not had the School take formal academic or disciplinary action against him/her that resulted in sanctions against the student;
- The student is not considered an at-risk student (cumulative grade point average < 2.6) at the end of Term 2 of the first year;
- The student earned the minimum passing grades in TermI and II first-year courses, Constitutional Law, and Evidence.
The Scholarship Committee also awards one-year, non-renewable 20 or 40 percent scholarships to first-year students. A one-year scholarship is applied in equal amounts to Terms I and II in the first year.
The School tracks renewable scholarship retention from year to year, beginning with the Fall 2011 incoming class:
