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 and Shamberg scholarships.

Note: At Washburn Law students must maintain a 2.80 GPA and be enrolled in at least nine (9) hours of academic work per semester to retain their scholarships. A student who loses a scholarship for academic reasons may apply to the Associate Dean for Administration to reinstate the scholarship when the student's cumulative GPA is raised to 2.80 or higher. Scholarship awards are issued for fall and spring semesters only; they are not offered for summer courses. See the "Conditional Scholarships" section on our Consumer Information (ABA Required Disclosures) page.
