Admissions Merit Scholarships

The Admissions Committee considers all admitted students for merit-based scholarships at the time of their admission to the law school. Merit-based scholarship awards are mailed with the admission letter. No application is required to be considered for an admissions merit scholarship.

Merit Based Scholarships

Established in 1999 by James E. Beasley, ’56, the Beasley Scholars program provides full and partial renewable tuition scholarships to entering students. Beasley Scholars are selected by the Admisisons Committee on the basis of academic excellence and financial need.

Law Faculty Scholarships are partial tuition scholarships awarded to a select number of applicants with outstanding undergraduate records and LSAT scores. There is no application for these scholarships. Law Faculty Scholarship recommendations are made by the Admissions Committee.

Named in honor of Russell Conwell, the founder of Temple University, these partial tuition scholarships are awarded to outstanding first year students selected through the law school’s discretionary admissions process. Conwell Scholars are selected by the Admissions Committee based on outstanding performance records and financial need.

The Admissions Committee awards a limited number of partial tuition scholarships for the first year of law school to admitted students with outstanding academic records.
