Scholarships & Grants

Scholarships for First-Year Students

The School of Law has various scholarships available to new law students. Some scholarships are designed to promote academic excellence, while others have been established to assist those in financial need or attract a diverse and experienced class. In awarding scholarships, the School of Law evaluates students using the same factors as those considered in evaluating applications. There is no additional scholarship application, and all applicants are automatically considered for any and all aid for which they are eligible. Scholarship recipients are typically notified of their awards at the time of acceptance or shortly thereafter, but awards are made on a rolling basis and notification could come at any time prior to enrollment.

Out-of-State Tuition Waivers

Texas law allows an out-of-state student (non-resident) who receives a competitive academic scholarship of at least $1,000 for the academic year to pay the significantly lower tuition rates otherwise available only to Texas residents.

Advanced Student Scholarships (for current TTU Law students only)

These scholarships are available to students in their second or third year of law school and are awarded on the basis of academic performance and financial need. Applications are available in the main office each Spring semester.
