Taxation LL.M. Scholarships and Fellowships

Georgetown University Law Center Graduate Tax Scholars
Each year the Law Center designates up to ten incoming full-time Taxation LL.M. students as Graduate Tax Scholars based on their demonstrated interest in tax policy and their potential to excel in tax scholarship. Scholars receive partial tuition awards and participate in an enrichment program with leading tax practitioners and government officials.
The selection of Graduate Tax Scholars will be based on academic merit and demonstrated potential for excellence in the field of taxation. The program is open to both U.S.- and foreign-educated applicants. 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 tax law or policy that is of interest to you. Applications to the Graduate Tax Scholars program will be considered on a rolling basis, as soon as your LL.M. application is fully completed and we receive your supplemental essay. We anticipate that the committee will choose all the Scholars for 2013-2014 by April 1, 2013. Therefore, applications should be submitted by February 15, 2013.
Georgetown University Law Center/Council on State Taxation (COST) Graduate Fellowship in State and Local Taxation
In conjunction with the Council on State Taxation (COST), the Law Center invites applications for two Fellowships in State and Local Taxation, one of the fastest-growing tax disciplines. Fellows receive a stipend (approximately $7,500) and a two-semester internship at COST. Please note that the COST Fellowship may affect financial aid packages. Preference is given to full-time LL.M. (Taxation) students.
The selection of Georgetown/COST Fellows will be based on academic merit and experience and/or interest in the field of state and local taxation. Only candidates who earned their J.D. degree at ABA/AALS-accredited law schools in the U.S. are eligible for these awards. Preference in the selection will be given to full-time students. To apply for a COST Fellowship, please submit a completed Georgetown University Law Center LL.M application to the Taxation program (including all required supplementary materials) and indicate your interest in the COST fellowship on your LL.M. application form. An unedited, unpublished, and analytical writing sample of at least 10 pages in length must be submitted to the Graduate Admissions Office by July 1, 2013. Program applicants may be interviewed and participants selected at the beginning of the fall semester.
KPMG Tax Scholarship
The KPMG Tax Scholarship, awarded annually in the amount of $7,500, is made possible by the generosity of the tax professionals at KPMG and by matching grants from the KPMG Foundation. The award is based on financial need and academic proficiency in the field of taxation. It is open to both U.S.- and foreign-educated full-time applicants. There is no additional application procedure for this scholarship; selected candidates will be invited to apply based on their LL.M. application materials.
