• Tuition and Financial Aid

    Making law school more affordable

    Scholarships

    All incoming, newly admitted students are automatically considered for merit and endowed scholarships - no additional application is needed. You are notified if you have received one of these scholarships. The Assistant Dean's Office has information on other available scholarships, which are awarded by a committee based on essays submitted by students. 

    Hamline's Financial Aid and Law Admissions offices are great resources to answer your questions related to tuition, financial aid, and scholarships for your education.
