Fordham Scholarships

Fordham Law has limited funding available for Graduate Students. The admissions committee occasionally awards partial scholarships to LLM and MSL students based on merit. There is no separate application process for these scholarships; they are awarded at the sole discretion of the admissions committee during their review of those applications completed by February 1 (Fall) and September 21 (Spring). Graduate program staff will notify applicants if they have been selected for a partial scholarship award.

Fordham Law also offers a scholarship through the Leitner Center for International Law and Justice. This scholarship is restricted to a select few highly qualified LLM candidates in international human rights. For application information, including the application deadline, please visit

External Scholarships and Resources
