Financial Need Grant
The Moritz College of Law provides modest Financial Need Grants (FNG) to a number of law students who complete the FAFSA form and the FNG application by February 15 of the enrollment year.
The FNG fund was designed for those who have extraordinary need; thus it is important to be thorough in completing the application form questions and narrative.
The FNG application is open to all law students and is awarded once annually.
For those applying for admission to law school, the application must be completed prior to receiving an admission decision if the applicant has not received a decision by February 14.
A typical award from the FNG fund will range between $1,000 to $5,000. Receipt of a scholarship does not preclude a FNG award, but will be considered in assessing the student’s overall need.
Decisions are made on an annual basis and are made independently of prior FNG awards. Therefore, prior recipient’s award amounts are subject to change depending upon the need of the FNG applicant pool. Because the FNG fund is a finite fund, only the most needy law students of those who apply can be awarded.
The 2014-2015 Financial Need Grant Application is available for download here.
