Identifying and securing scholarships for graduate-level students can be a difficult process. Therefore, in an ongoing effort to provide alternative sources of funding to alleviate costs, Arizona Summit Law School is committed to reach out to our students with any scholarships that are known to our department.
Merit Scholarships
Each term, our Admissions Office awards a limited number of students merit scholarships based on a holistic review of their academic and personal accomplishments. As part of the admissions process, each student is automatically considered each term, and scholarship retention is based on maintaining a 2.8 GPA with the required number of credit hours for your program.
Governor Raul Castro Scholarship for Academic Excellence
Once you’ve completed 30 credit hours at Arizona Summit Law School with a minimum 2.8 GPA, you will be awarded the Governor Raul Castro Scholarship for Academic Excellence, which will vary depending on the GPA you attain and will be reviewed and awarded each term.
