Nonuniversity Awards

In addition to the opportunities mentioned above, there are other sources from which qualified law students may receive financial aid. Many national, state,and regional associations make special awards. Students also should contact clubs; fraternal, religious, and national professional organizations; and local interest groups for possible aid through stipends and tuition credits. A student who receives any of these awards is required to notify the Office of Financial Aid. Two examples of this type of award are listed below.

Local Bar Association Scholarships. Local and specialty bar associations in many jurisdictions throughout the country have scholarship programs for students from their areas. The Atlantic, Bergen, Burlington, Camden, Essex, Mercer, Monmouth, Somerset, and Union County Bar Associations and the Hudson County Bar Foundation all have established grants specifically for residents of their counties attending law school. Information may be obtained either from local bar associations or from the financial aid office at the School of Law-Newark.

New Jersey State Bar Association Foundation Scholarship Program. The foundation annually offers a $2,500 scholarship to the school for students who are residents of New Jersey, show great academic promise, and have substantial need. The foundation also offers four additional scholarship opportunities for students attending New Jersey law schools.
