J.D. Admissions

Public Service Scholarships

The Moritz College of Law has a strong history of preparing students for careers in the public interest and in public service.  Many of our students have, prior to entering law school, already devoted a significant amount of time, resources, and talent to work in the public interest or public service.  These scholarships may be awarded to students with a demonstrated record of engagement in public interest and public service activities.  Examples include, but are certainly not limited to, members of the military, Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, Teach for America and a wide range of other programs or activities.

Applications for this award are not required, though applicants are  highly encouraged to submit an essay.

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.

Public Service Scholarships are renewable for each year of law school, not to exceed three years total, if recipients remain in good academic standing by maintaining a 2.0 GPA.
