More than 90 percent of Mercer Law students receive some amount of financial assistance. We make every effort to assist students with obtaining the aid they need to attend law school. The aid may be in the form of merit scholarships, Direct Stafford loans, Direct Graduate PLUS loans, alternative private loans, work-study assignments, vocational-rehabilitation benefits, and other programs.
For information on the types of financial aid available, eligibility for financial aid, student loans, federal work-study and student loan repayment, please see the Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Financial Aid.
Mercer Law School offers merit scholarships each year to applicants whose academic records, LSAT scores, and personal achievements demonstrate the potential for outstanding performance in the study of law. The Law School also makes some scholarship awards for the final two years of law school to students who excel academically in their first year and who received little or no award when they entered. Mercer Law does not award scholarships that are conditional on law school academic performance other than remaining in good academic standing. In order to remain in good academic standing, all students must have a 76 average or above at the end of each academic year. We also encourage students to seek and apply for outside scholarships and awards. Opportunities for scholarships and awards from sources other than Mercer are posted here: Outside Scholarships and Writing Opportunities.
To apply for federal student loans and/or federal work study, you must complete the following two items. The deadline for priority consideration is April 1.
