Arizona Law awards a significant number of merit-based scholarships each year to entering JD students. Candidates are considered for merit awards as part of the admission process; no separate application is required. For details on these awards, applicants should contact the Admissions office at


If you did not receive an Arizona Law scholarship (or if your scholarship is less than $10,000), and you achieve a class rank at or above the 90th percentile (top 10 percent) of your class as calculated at the end of the first year of study, you will be eligible for a $10,000 scholarship award, or an award in the amount necessary to raise an existing scholarship award to $10,000, as applicable, for the second and third years of study.

If you are awarded an Arizona Law scholarship as a non-resident of Arizona, and later obtain residency, you must promptly notify the College of Law Financial Aid office. Your scholarship will be adjusted so that it reflects the same percent discount on tuition.
Qualified Tuition Reduction
If you plan to participate in the University of Arizona’s Qualified Tuition Reduction (QTR) program, you must notify the College of Law Financial Aid office. Students who receive QTRs are not eligible for Arizona Law scholarships.
Dual Degree Students
If you are a dual degree student, you will receive your Arizona Law scholarship for the years during which you pay law school tuition. Your Arizona Law scholarship will not apply when you pay graduate school tuition.
Visiting Students
If you become a visiting student at another law school, you will not be eligible for your Arizona Law scholarship for the term(s) in which you are enrolled at the other institution.
