Scholarship Renewal Criteria

  • Presidential and Trustees’ Merit Scholarships are renewed annually as long as the recipient maintains a 3.0 cumulative grade point average in the JD Program.  The cumulative grade point average of scholarship recipients will be reviewed once per academic year, at the end of spring semester only, to determine eligibility for renewal.  If the recipient’s cumulative grade point average is between 2.75—2.99, the scholarship will be renewed at 50% the original award amount; the award will be revoked for students with cumulative grade point averages below 2.75.

    Dean’s Scholarships are renewed annually if the recipient maintains a 2.5 cumulative grade point average in the JD Program. The cumulative grade point average of scholarship recipients will be reviewed once per academic year, at the end of spring semester only, to determine eligibility for renewal.  If the recipient’s cumulative grade point average is between 2.25—2.49, the scholarship will be renewed at 50% the original award amount; the award will be revoked for students with cumulative grade point averages below 2.25.

    Endowed Scholarships are awarded annually to students who meet the donors' specific selection criteria. Most awards are non-renewable.
