Scholarships for Continuing Students

Continuing student scholarships are awarded primarily based on grade point average at the end of each academic year.

Evening students who are recipients of the Fritz B. Burns Scholarship may receive tuition credit for, but not to exceed, a maximum of nine (9) Loyola Law School summer session units. All other full tuition recipients receive their scholarships for the fall and spring only

Please note that our policy on scholarship renewal requirements is reviewed annually, and in recent years has changed.  Students in the class will be able to retain their merit scholarship as long as they maintain a 3.2 cumulative GPA - which is equivalent to being in approximately the top 50% of the class.  However, once a scholarship is forfeited due to failure to meet the renewal criteria, it will not be renewed in any subsequent year even if the GPA requirement is met.  Data for the entering class scholarship retention will be available in July.

Scholarships are withdrawn immediately if the eligibility criteria established by the Scholarship Committee are not maintained.

The following institutional scholarships are available to continuing students:

Fritz B. Burns Scholarship

  • Covers full tuition and mandatory fees as well as a book stipend.
  • Awarded to one day student and one evening student who achieves the highest class rank at the end of the first year of law school.
  • Will be renewable, if the eligibility criteria are maintained.

Academic Scholarships

  • Awards range from partial to full tuition.
  • Are awarded on the basis of academic achievement.

There are a number of annual or outside scholarships that are also awarded to students each year as a result of a scholarship selection or application process. These scholarships include, but are not limited to:

  • The Ahmanson Foundation Scholarship
  • Beverly Hills Bar Association Scholarship

Information regarding current outside or private scholarships will be posted on the Office of Financial Aid bulletin board and In Brief.

Yellow Ribbon Award

Loyola Law School will participate in the VA Yellow Ribbon Program during the Academic Year. The Law School has agreed to provide a direct grant of $2,000 to a maximum of 15 qualifying veterans during the Academic Year ($1,000 in the Fall term and $1,000 in the Spring term).

Students will be considered for the Yellow Ribbon Award on a first come first serve basis. Students who are veterans and are eligible for the Yellow Ribbon program must submit a copy of their Certificate of Eligibility (COE) to the Registrar's Office. 

Students will receive notification from Loyola Law School if they are selected to receive the Yellow Ribbon Award.
