Western New England University School of Law has a history of making our outstanding educational experience accessible to individuals with academic potential who also have financial need. Many motivated and talented students look to the School of Law for scholarships to enable them to fulfill their educational and career goals. With more than 80 percent of law students requiring financial aid each year, many of our generous donors have recognized the importance of providing opportunities to new generations of students through creating named scholarships at the Western New England University School of Law. We invite you to consider establishing a named scholarship at the School of Law. To see a listing of current named scholarships please click here.

Endowed Scholarships

Endowed financial aid funds provide permanent, ongoing support for scholarships for deserving students. As such, these funds are of great importance for the future strength of the School of Law. For endowed funds, a set percentage of their value is spent each year for their intended purpose. Because of this, donors who contribute to an endowed fund have the satisfaction of knowing that their gifts will have a lasting impact, helping current and future generations of Western New England University School of Law students to achieve their dreams.

If you are interested in establishing an endowed scholarship, please contact us for more information.

School of Law Annual Scholarship Program

We know that not all donors can make a commitment to endow a permanent fund, but committing to an annual scholarship can still make a difference. You do not have to be wealthy to make an impact in a student’s education.

Annual scholarships are created with a minimum commitment of $1,000 annually. These funds are given outright to deserving students. Annual scholarships are not permanent, and this source of financial aid ends when the donor ceases to make contributions.

If you are interested in creating an annual scholarship for a law student, please review the annual scholarship brochure seen on the side panel. Please also feel free to contact us for more information.

"I was fortunate to receive scholarship assistance that enabled me to attend Western New England University School of Law.  I know my success is owed in part to someone before me who supported a scholarship fund.  I believe if you benefit from such a kindness, you have the responsibility to give back.  And that is a way of passing it on."
