J.D. Admissions

External Scholarships & Grants

There are a variety of scholarships and grants outside of the Moritz College of Law, including from the university, local bar associations, philanthropic organizations, etc. There also are a variety of books and free online scholarship search sites that might provide information about other sources of scholarship/grant aid. We generally discourage students from using scholarship search services that require a search fee.

Entering and continuing students who are awarded a grant(s) or scholarship(s) from outside of the Moritz College of Law and the university must inform the Office of Student Financial Aid about this financial assistance. Students may email lawfinaid@osu.edu with the name of the award and the amount of the award.

The following is a select list of scholarships and grants given by organizations and entities that are not affiliated with the Moritz College of Law or The Ohio State University.  These may navigate you away from the Moritz College of Law website.  Any applications provided are to be submitted through the corresponding scholarship provider.
