Financial Assistance

Many law students are unable to pay the full cost of their legal education. Financial assistance is available through long- and short-term loans. After the student has completed the first year of law school, financial assistance is available through fellowships, part-time employment, and full-time employment.

Favorable long-term loans through the university and private lenders are available to law students who meet eligibility requirements. All applicants for loans must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. All first-year entering student applicants are reviewed for available scholarships without filing additional forms. Returning second- and third-year students must also file the scholarship and financial aid application required by the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid. Inquiries about loan assistance should be directed to the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid, Cavanaugh Hall 103, 425 University Boulevard, Indianapolis, Indiana 46202-5145.

Scholarships, which are awarded in varying amounts on the basis of scholastic achievement and other factors, are made possible by the university and the generous support of alumni and friends of the law school. For entering first-year students, no additional forms need to be completed to be reviewed for scholarships unless specific information is requested from the applicant by the Office of Admissions.

Inquiries from second- and third-year students should be directed to the law school's assistant dean for student affairs. Research assistant-ships are available to students who work with faculty on research projects (not including first-year students). The second- and third-year students are also eligible for many annual awards from national organizations and can participate in national competitions in many areas of law.

Edwards Fellowships that are awarded to students in the various Indiana University graduate schools, and Educational Opportunity Fellowships that are provided annually to minority and disadvantaged students who show high academic promise.
