Tuition Merit Scholarships and Academic Achievement Scholarships
The Fowler School of Law provides a generous merit-based scholarship program to assist with the cost of legal education. By seeking to meet the financial needs of as many students as possible, we enable our students to graduate with relatively low levels of indebtedness.
The Fowler School of Law is pleased to offer merit-based scholarships to first year students. Tuition merit scholarships range from 10%-100% of tuition. Academic Achievement scholarships are $7500 (Fall 2013). Merit scholarships can be renewed provided students have a cumulative 3.000 GPA (Fall 2012 start and prior) or 2.900 (Fall 2013 start and beyond) at the end of the spring semester. Additional retention information can be found on the Scholarship Policy and Retention page.
For new JD students, this non-renewable $500-$1,000 scholarship is made possible as a result of our generous Chapman/Fowler Alumni and donations in the honor of Justice David G. Sills.
Four Pillars Award
Only awarded to students entering Fall 2012. The Chapman experience focuses on the whole student and encourages growth in the four dimensions of life: intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social. This non-renewable award is given to first year students who embody the four pillars of Chapman, and will contribute to the Fowler School of Law community, the legal profession and demonstrate potential to grow personally and professionally.
