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

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.
