Funding Opportunities for JSD Students
There is limited financial aid available for JSD students and currently we offer need-based aid for first year JSDs only. We encourage applicants to work as teaching and research assistants, and apply for scholarships from foundations and government sponsors. Our students have received funding from these sources as well as others:
