Financial Aid


Each fall, some of the country's brightest students begin their legal studies at Georgetown Law.  They are drawn here because of our academic reputation, outstanding faculty, and commitment to service. For many, their decision to attend is heavily influenced by our ability to provide a competitive financial aid package. It is crucial that additional resources are found to meet the growing demand for financial aid as Georgetown remains committed to its "need- blind" admissions policy.

Opportunity Scholarships

Opportunity Scholarships are awarded to students with the highest academic credentials and the most significant financial need - exceeding $18,500 annually. A three year commitment (of $10,000/year) helps the Law Center be certain that the most highly qualified candidates have access to a Georgetown legal education and ensures that a student's financial resources are not a barrier to his or her decision to enroll at Georgetown Law.

Participants receive:

  • A student profile 
  • An invitation to the Law Center's annual scholarship luncheon
  • Hogan Society membership
