J.D. Admissions

Leadership Scholarships

Each year, the Moritz College of Law awards Leadership Scholarships to students who demonstrate strong leadership potential.

The scholarships are based on leadership qualities, professional and personal life accomplishments, past academic achievement, and commitment to making a difference in communities and organizations.

Applications for this award are not required, though applicants are encouraged to submit an essay (not to exceed two pages) that speaks to their leadership abilities.

Please submit the essay as a part of your application. If you choose to submit it after you have applied, email the essay to lawadmit@osu.edu.

Leadership Scholarships are renewable for each year of law school, not to exceed three years total. In order to retain a Leadership Scholarship, one must stay in good academic standing, which means maintaining at least a 2.0 GPA.
