M.S.L. Scholarships

On-campus M.S.L. Scholarships and Financial Aid

Information on specific Fordham Law scholarships is provided below, along with a list of external scholarships, costs of attendance, payment options, and a link to the Law School Financial Aid Office. Fordham Law scholarships cannot be combined; if you are awarded more than one scholarship from Fordham Law you may accept only one. Those eligible for tuition remission from Fordham University are not eligible to receive a Fordham scholarship. For all tax questions, please refer to your tax advisor.
The Harold S. Geneen Charitable Trust
The Harold S. Geneen Charitable Trust awards two full-tuition scholarships per year. The scholarship is awarded to MSL Corporate Compliance students who demonstrate their commitment to responsible corporate management. There is a preference for those with an undergraduate business degree, however, others are welcome to apply. If you are interested in applying for this scholarship please write a 500-word essay describing a time when you face an ethical or moral dilemma and how you navigated through it, and explain how this is indicative of your commitment to responsible corporate management. Please email completed essays to [email protected] with "Geneen Trust Scholarship" in the subject line.  Preference will be given to those who submit by May 1. Open only to U.S. Citizens or permanent residents.
Fordham Law Graduate Student Scholarship

The admissions committee awards partial scholarships to select M.S.L. applicants based on merit. There is no separate application process to be considered; Graduate Student Scholarships are awarded at the sole discretion of the admissions committee during their review of completed applications. Priority consideration is given to those with applications completed by the early, scholarship deadline, May 1. Graduate program staff will notify applicants if they have been selected for a merit scholarship award.

Graduate Student Scholarships may not be deferred to a later year. Applicants who defer their admission may request to have their application filen reconsidered for a Graduate Student Scholarship during the review process for the next fall semester.

External scholarships and resources

You are encouraged to seek additional sources of funding. Our office has gathered together a list of external scholarships and resources that may be relevant to LL.M. and/or M.S.L. students. You are encouraged to use this list as a starting place in your search.

Tuition payment 

Tuition invoices are mailed to students prior to the start of each semester, and will also be posted to students' my.fordham.edu accounts. Students are expected to check their accounts regularly and make sure that tuition payments are made on time. Students who do not pay their tuition on time will be assessed late charges by the University.

Any questions about tuition or billing should be directed to the Enrollment Services Office at 718-817-4900 or at [email protected].

Fordham University offers a monthly tuition payment plan administered by Nelnet.
