Today's students increasingly rely on financial aid to make their legal education both affordable and possible. Because our financial aid offerings are out of balance with peer law schools, we are losing talented students and talented students are losing out on a Fordham Law education.

The Campaign will help us right this imbalance.

Perhaps more than any other donation, your gift to expand financial aid ensures the future of Fordham Law by helping the School to recruit and retain the nation's top students. These exceptionally qualified students bring with them a mix of talents, interests, and aspirations that strengthen our vibrant academic community—and they graduate prepared to excel as Fordham lawyers.

Be a game changer for scholarships.

Support the Fordham Law Fund. Your unrestricted gift of any amount will be pooled with other donors' gifts to help fund the School's annual operating budget, including financial aid. When you make your gift online, simply specify your Fund Choice as Law School Annual Fund or Law School Scholarship Fund.

Name an annual or endowed scholarship. Annual scholarships require a gift of $15,000+ and are designated for current use, meaning they are awarded in the next academic year to bolster financial aid packages to help attract and retain top students. Endowed scholarships established with a gift of $100,000+ are a wonderful way to honor family members, professors, friends, and colleagues while helping the Law School provide merit scholarships and financial aid to our students. As an annual or endowed scholarship donor, you'll be invited to meet the student benefiting from your generosity at the Scholarship Benefactors Reception. To create a scholarship with your gift, please contact Brian Lenker, Director of Development and Stewardship at 212-636-6569 or
