Grants and Scholarships
Scholarships are not conditional at Michigan Law. To retain a scholarship from year to year, a student need merely enroll at the Law School with a full-time course load and remain in good standing.
Law School grants are offered by the Financial Aid Office to students who show exceptional financial need. In assessing need, we take into account a variety of historical factors, such as Pell eligibility as an undergraduate, as well as current financial factors, such as income and assets. We do not require applicants to submit any parental financial records. First-year admitted students may complete a very short online questionnaire to determine whether additional forms need to be completed. Need-based aid eligibility is assessed beginning in March, and need-based grants are awarded for five semesters of law school.
Special scholarship awards
City Year National Service ScholarshipMichigan Law is pleased to offer a merit scholarship to all admitted students who have completed the City Year program. City Year National Service Scholars will be awarded $10,000 per year for all three years of law school. To remain eligible for the City Year National Service Scholarship from year to year, students need merely enroll at the Law School with a full-time course load and remain in good academic standing. City Year National Service Scholars who defer their enrollment will receive the award beginning in the year in which they enroll.
The College Work-Study Employment Program
The College Work-Study Employment Program enables students to earn money through employment within the University. Law students often work in the Law Library or serve as research assistants to law professors. The federal government subsidizes 60 percent of all work-study wages.
Michigan Law's Income-Based Debt Management Program (LRAP)
The Income-Based Debt Management Program (LRAP) at the Law School provides those from the entering class of 2011 and later with maximum flexibility to choose jobs from any law-related area (excluding judicial clerkships and U-M funded fellowships), including modest-paying public interest positions, while still maintaining a reasonable lifestyle and remaining current on outstanding loan obligations. Graduates whose combination of income and debt make them eligible receive assistance in meeting their loan obligations incurred during law school. Consult the Financial Aid Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Income-Based Debt Management FAQ for more details.
