Global Health Law Scholars
The Global Health Law Program offers a limited number of Global Health Law scholarships per academic year to students pursuing an LL.M. degree in Global Health Law or Global Health & International Institutions. Global Health Law Scholars, in addition to the title, will receive full or partial tuition awards. These awards may be sponsored by Georgetown Law and/or major outside organizations in law and health, and may be coupled with internship opportunities.
Applicants will be selected by a committee on the basis of their (1) academic qualifications in the fields of law/ethics and public health, health policy, health economics, bioethics, or other relevant disciplines; (2) public or private sector work experience on global or domestic health law issues; and (3) demonstrated potential for excellence within the field of global health law. Students' financial needs may also be considered. Preference is given to full-time students.
To apply for the program, indicate your interest in being considered for the scholarship on your LL.M. application form, and submit a supplemental essay of no more than 500 words on an issue of health law or policy that is of interest to you. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, but applicants who wish to be considered for the scholarship must complete their applications by February 15, 2013 at the latest.
