Law School Scholarships
On March 4th Go All in for Santa Clara Law!

1) Strategic Initiatives Fund 

Unrestricted and versatile, this fund allows the Law School to address the diverse, strategic, time sensitive, and unexpected needs of the community.  In general, the Strategic Initiatives Fund provides support in five critical areas:

  • Student Success – including scholarships and academic support resources

  • Faculty Enrichment & Scholarship – attracting and retaining the best minds in the field

  • Graduate Support Services – career services, CLE, and an active alumni network

  • Experiential Learning – providing practical legal training to our students and offering valuable services to our wider community

  • Next Practices – developing a curriculum that keeps our students at the industry’s cutting edge


2) Dean's Merit Scholarship Endowed Fund 

Recognizing the increasingly competitive landscape among law schools and the emergence of financial aid resources available for transfer students, Santa Clara Law seeks to establish an endowed fund that can provide scholarship assistance to top-performing students, thereby encouraging them to complete their degree at Santa Clara Law. Retaining our top-performing students will produce higher bar passage and post-graduation employment rates among graduates, each important criteria in determining the overall ranking of Santa Clara Law among US law schools.


3) Thurgood Marshall Civil Rights Scholarship

Established to annually recognize one or more upper-division law student(s) who demonstrate a commitment to civil rights. The award honors the legacy of Justice Thurgood Marshall and recognizes Santa Clara Law students who have embodied his spirit in the work that they have done to promote civil rights and advance social justice. 


4) The Justice Edward A. Panelli Endowed Scholarship

Established on March 13, 2001, this scholarship has provided nearly $200k in financial assistance for law students from a variety of backgrounds.






"Scholarships are the key that opens the door to Santa Clara Law for individuals from historically underrepresented communities, builds a diverse community of scholars, and helps to retain top-performing students. This past year, 76% of our student-body benefited from the presence of scholarship assistance."  

— Santa Clara Law Interim Dean Anna Han
