Richard C. and Shirley I. Fields Transformation of Society Scholarship
The Concordia University School of Law Richard C. and Shirley I. Fields Transformation of Society Scholarship was established to help identify talented individuals committed to the transformation of society through service. Students receiving the Transformation of Society Award are expected to be leaders within the law school community and actively participate in pro bono service work. They are also expected to help develop and execute public service projects for the law school, and to seek-out areas of need within the local community. In order to apply for the Transformation of Society Scholarship, students must have achieved at least a 3.25 undergraduate GPA and scored a 158 or higher on the LSAT. In exceptional cases, the scholarship committee may allow students who have not met these benchmarks to be considered for the scholarship.
Transformation Through Service Grants
In line with the mission of Concordia University to prepare leaders for the transformation of society, the law school awards every incoming student a Transformation Through Service Grant in the amount of $15,000. These grants are available to both full and part-time students and do not require a minimum GPA. Distributed in equal amounts each year ($5,000 per year for full-time students and $3,750 per year for part-time students), these awards are designed to inspire students to prioritize service to their community both during and after law school.
Scholars Society Award
Concordia strives to keep law school costs manageable by creating a community of supporters – a Scholars Society – to assist students. Scholars Society Awards are based on application received dates. By November 15 = $1,500 per year, by February 15 = $1,000 per year, after February 15 = $500 per year.
Academic Excellence Scholarships
Each candidate for admission will be considered for Academic Excellence Scholarships based upon prior educational grades and potential for success as indicated by performance on the LSAT. Academic Excellence Scholarships range in amount from $9,000-$42,000 ($3,000-$14,000 per year for three years for full-time students and $2,250-$10,500 per year for four years for part-time students). These awards are fully renewable and require only that a student remain an enrolled student at Concordia University School of Law. There is no minimum GPA requirement. Awards are guaranteed to candidates who score a 149 or above on the LSAT.
