Frequently asked questions

How many law scholarships are there?

At Scholaroo, be sure to find over 40 scholarships for law majors. Scholaroo’s list ranges between scholarships, internships, fellowships and competitions, catering to all educational levels starting off from your high school senior year. Some even cater only to female students pursuing law degrees. Scholaroo also features over 20 scholarships created and sponsored by major law firms across the country.

Why pursue law firm scholarships?

Scholarship programs provided by law firms tend to offer candidates more than funds to cover tuition and educational expenses. Most of them give winners a good recognition that is later added to their resumes, open a large network for them for future employment, and offer them internships to gain more experience and training.

When should you apply for a law scholarship?

Scholarship applications for law majors can start in your high school senior year and onwards. Most often, high school seniors start preparing for college applications and scholarships in the summer prior to their senior year. Transfer students and even returning students can find themselves eligible for a number of our listed scholarships. If you have time on your hands, you should keep checking back for suitable programs and their opening time and deadlines.

Do you have to repay your awards following program completion?

No. However, you need to review the terms and conditions of the scholarship you have applied for or won before accepting it. In most cases, repayment or a penalty is charged if the terms are violated.

Does FAFSA cover your academic expenses?

If you apply for financial aid via your school financial aid office and get accepted, it is the federal fund FAFSA that covers your tuition and fees. Be sure to provide all accurate financial information about you and your household. A lot of scholarship programs provide financial aid without proof of financial statuses.
