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 semester, our Admissions Office awards a limited number of new students merit scholarships based on a holistic review of their academic and personal accomplishments. Scholarship retention is based on maintaining a 2.8 cumulative GPA with the required number of credit hours for your program. After completion of two semesters, all students will be evaluated to ensure their eligibility. Students are then reviewed every semester thereafter.
Governor Raul Castro Scholarship for Academic Excellence
Once you’ve completed two semesters at Arizona Summit Law School with a minimum 2.8 cumulative 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. If your Merit Scholarship is greater than the Castro Scholarship, you will retain the Merit Scholarship.  If the Castro Scholarship is greater than your Merit Scholarship, you will be awarded the Castro Scholarship.
