Types of aid for law students


Wayne Law offers a variety of scholarships based on a combination of criteria. New students will be considered for a merit award by the Wayne Law Admissions Office. Many of our students also often qualify for awards from external organizations, and we encourage you to pursue all opportunities.

Students receiving scholarships, stipends, and fellowships can receive other federal and state aid provided the total amount awarded does not exceed the student's estimated cost of attendance.


A federal work-study award is offered to students with financial need who may contribute toward their educational expenses by working part time. 


Loans require repayment. Detailed information about repayment of federal loans — including borrower rights and responsibilities — is available on the Federal Student Aid webiste.

Other types of aid

You may qualify for specialized types of financial aid based on a variety of factors.
