Scholarships and Grant Aid

Vermont Law School offers merit-based, need-based, and opportunity-based scholarships. Scholarships are awarded by Vermont Law School and made possible through the generous contributions of VLS alumni and donors. The awards are based on academic abilities, achievements, community service, and other considerations.

A variety of financial assistance is available at Vermont Law School in the form of scholarships, loans, work study, and fellowships. More than $27 million in aid was awarded for the 2013-14 year to enrolled Vermont Law School students.

At Vermont Law, we are fortunate to have resources that allow us to offer merit-based scholarship aid. Merit awards are given annually to entering students who demonstrate excellent academic achievement and promise, evidence of commitment to public service, or dedicated environmental stewardship. More than 85 percent of the 2013-14 entering class received a Vermont Law School merit scholarship. No separate scholarship application is required.
