All admitted students are automatically evaluated and reevaulated for our Dean's Merit Scholarships; no separate application steps are required. Scholarship offers will be made all the way up to our deposit deadline.
Admitted students who demonstrate impressive academic credentials and express a strong interest (and background) in particular areas of law will be selected as Villanova Law Student Scholars. In addition to renewable financial assistance, Student Scholars have access to consequential programmatic rewards.
First, Scholars are assigned a faculty member whose interests and career path align with their own goals. Scholars are also assigned alumni mentors who are practicing in the particular field. Further, Student Scholars are guaranteed registration in specialized upper-level coursework. Finally, should a Scholar choose to seek a 1L summer position through the Law School, they are well-positioned for a relevant placement, either as a part-time Research Assistant, or by participating in a relevant externship, based upon particular academic or professional record and preferences.
The Villanova Law Student Scholars Program is designed to build upon Villanova Law's singular strengths: outstanding, active faculty; curricular specialization; a close-knit supportive community; and real-world law student impact.
At this time, Student Scholars are focused on the following academic and professional tracks: Criminal Law; Environmental Law; Intellectual Property; International Law; Immigration and Trafficking; Law, Religion, and Philosophy; and Tax.
