UCLA Law Distinguished Scholars Program

The UCLA Law Distinguished Scholars Program is a merit-based full tuition scholarship program for a small number of the most exceptionally qualified applicants who have determined that UCLA Law is their first choice. The designation as a UCLA Law Distinguished Scholar will be the highest honor bestowed upon members of the incoming J.D. class.

Recipients of the award who are California residents will be awarded full resident tuition and fees for three academic years, beginning in fall 2018, provided they remain students in good standing. Recipients who are not California residents will be awarded full non-resident tuition and fees for their first year of law school, and full California resident tuition and fees for their second and third years of law school.* No showing of financial need is required for these awards.

UCLA Law Achievement Fellowship Program

The UCLA Law Achievement Fellowship Program is a full tuition scholarship program designed specifically for a small number of academically talented, high-achieving applicants who have also overcome significant obstacles in life, such as socio-economic or educational – hardships, disabilities, or other major challenges. In keeping with UCLA Law School’s commitment to both access and excellence, in most circumstances, UCLA Law Achievement Fellows are likely to be the first in their family to attend graduate or professional school, though this is not an absolute requirement.

Recipients of UCLA Law Achievement Fellowships who are California residents will be awarded full resident tuition and fees for three academic years, beginning in fall 2018, provided they remain students in good standing. Recipients who are not California residents will be awarded full non-resident tuition and fees for their first year of law school, and full resident tuition and fees for their second and third years of law school.* The application deadline for the UCLA Law Achievement Fellowship Program is January 16, 2018. Applicants are encouraged to take the LSAT no later than December 2017. However, applicants taking the February 2018 LSAT may still apply and be considered for any remaining Achievement Fellowships that are available. Finalists will be interviewed, and recipients will be announced by mid-April. Unlike the UCLA Law Distinguished Scholars Program, this is not a “binding” program. Successful applicants may still consider other law schools, but they must indicate their desire to accept the scholarship and make a seat deposit (which will be refunded upon enrollment in the fall) by the deadline stated in their admission letter. Awards not accepted by this date will be offered to other candidates.
