Financial Aid

The School of Law-Newark and the staff in the Office of Financial Aid at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey,are concerned with students` educational expenses. The impact of educational expenses upon the student and his or her family is sizable, even though tuition at Rutgers covers only a small portion of the actual cost of instruction for each student. In order to allow students with limited financial resources to attend law school, every effort will be made to assist these students in finding alternatives to financing their education.

The majority of graduate students at the university, like most graduate students in America, receive some measure of financial aid. The amount of support each student receivesdepends in part, of course, upon the availability of funds. Support ranges from grants covering tuition charges to awards sufficient to pay all educational and living expenses. The sources of support include university funds, federal and state government funds, corporate and individual bequests to the university, and grants from educational and scientific foundations.

Limited funds are available from scholarships, fellowships,assistantships, grants, low-interest loans, and part-time employment to students at the school. Applicants are considered for all forms of aid for which they are eligible.

A brief description of each program follows. All students are strongly encouraged to file the Free Applicationfor Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually. Students may contact the law school`s financial aid office or the Office of Financial Aid, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, 249 University Avenue, Newark, NJ 07102, for forms or additional information.
