Entering Student Scholarships
Entering students are considered for the following scholarships based on their application for admission. Scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis and notifications are mailed to recipients. Visit our Conditional Scholarship Retention Rates page for scholarship retention data.
Dean’s Scholarship: These awards may provide full or partial tuition and fees for up to three years, provided that a stipulated grade point average is maintained each academic year.
Denton Leadership Stipend: Toledo Law offers Denton Leadership and Service awards to select applicants who have shown extraordinary leadership and promise. This one-time stipend is intended to provide funding for miscellaneous law school related expenses.
Legal Education Opportunity Grant (LEOG): Toledo Law offers LEOG awards to high-achieving candidates from groups traditionally underrepresented in the legal profession. These awards offer up to full tuition and fees, and may include a book stipend.

Through the generosity of alumni and benefactors, there are many upper-level scholarships for which current students may apply during spring semester each year.
To be considered for upper-level scholarships, current students must complete the 2015-16 College of Law Scholarship Application during spring semester. The Law Financial Aid Office is available to help students identify funding opportunities.
Top Ten Scholarship: Students who entered Toledo Law without a Dean’s or LEOG scholarship, and who complete the first-year curriculum and are ranked in the Top 10 of their class, will receive a scholarship that covers in-state tuition for their second year of law school.
