Applying For Scholarships

Upon admission to Washburn Law, each student is automatically considered for institutional scholarships. For most scholarships no additional information is required. These are merit-based scholarships, awarded from our general scholarship fund.

Generous contributions from alumni and friends make it possible for the School of Law to award institutional scholarships:

  • approximately 75% percent of the entering first-year class receive scholarship awards.
  • 30% percent of entering students receive nearly full resident scholarships; some receive more.

In addition to the general scholarships we award, select students will be invited to apply for our Koch, Hill, and Shamberg scholarships.

Note: At Washburn Law students must maintain a 2.80 GPA to retain their scholarships. Students who lose their scholarship for academic reasons automatically regain the scholarship when their cumulative GPA is raised to 2.80 or higher.
