First-Year Student Scholarships

Texas Tech Law has various scholarships available to incoming law students. Some scholarships are designed to promote academic excellence, while others have been established to assist those in financial need or attract a diverse and experienced class.

In awarding scholarships, the law school evaluates students using the same factors as those considered in evaluating applications. There is no additional scholarship application. All applicants are automatically considered for any and all aid for which they are eligible.

Scholarship recipients are typically notified of their awards at the time of acceptance or shortly thereafter, but awards are made on a rolling basis and notification could come at any time prior to enrollment.

Advanced Student Scholarships

These scholarships are available to students in their second or third year of law school and are awarded on the basis of academic performance and financial need. Applications are available in the main office each spring semester.
