Amicus Fund (General Student Scholarships)


It is because of you that the School of Law continues recruiting and enrolling students across the world from a variety of experiences, perspectives, and career goals. The Amicus Fund provides the Law School with unrestricted resources that allow the school to remain innovative and competitive while moving forward Dean Kaufman's vision to ensure that no student is denied a Santa Clara legal education because of financial need.

Direct, Immediate, and Powerful Impact

All gifts made to the Amicus Fund no matter big or small go to work immediately in benefiting current students through:

  • Student Success scholarship funds and academic support help us attract and retain high-achieving men and women who not only excel academically, but also model leadership in the Jesuit, Catholic mission.
  • Faculty Enrichment & Scholarship  supporting our legal faculty and their research to ensure students receive the vital learning experiences they need and deserve.
  • Graduate Support Services  facilitating an active alumni network through regional gatherings, Continuing Legal Education, and mentorship opportunities. 
  • Clinical Service and Experiential Learning  providing practical legal training to our students and invaluable legal counseling for underserved communities.
  • Innovative Practices  developing a legal education curriculum that meets the needs of today’s students and tomorrow’s clients.

Through your generosity, you are making an impact in creating attorneys who will meet the leadership challenges of Silicon Valley and beyond.
