The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law awards several full and partial, three-year scholarships to incoming high achieving J.D. candidates who demonstrate a record of significant academic accomplishment and have demonstrated capacity for leadership.
Scholarship decisions are made by the Admissions Committee through the regular admissions process. While there is no application required for consideration of this scholarship, applicants to the law school may submit a brief essay, of no more than 250 words, that describes his/her leadership capabilities or interests.
Leadership Scholars are encouraged to participate in the Program on Law and Leadership and to take the College’s pioneering Lawyers as Leaders course. Moreover, the Mentoring and More @ Moritz program and study abroad experiences at the University of Oxford, along with others, offer supplementary opportunities for scholarship students to be active as leaders well before graduation. All of which makes the confluence of Leadership Scholars’ potential and Moritz resources the ideal environment for serious leaders. At graduation, one or two students who have contributed greatly to the program are honored with an award.
