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.

College of Law Merit Scholarship: These awards provide full or partial tuition and fees and are available to both full- and part-time students.  

Dean's Leadership & Service Stipend: Toledo Law offers  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.
