Welcome!


Financing law school is not as scary as it seems.  These pages will give you all the information you need to navigate the financial aid opportunities at Fordham Law.

Fordham's institutional aid is awarded on the basis of either academic merit or demonstrated need.   Applicants with outstanding academic credentials and LSAT scores will be awarded Merit Scholarships.  Applicants who wish to be considered for Need-based Grants and Named Scholarships must complete the Fordham Financial Aid Application (available on the Admitted Students website).  Need-based awards are given to the neediest of students.  Students will also need to consider Federal and Private loan programs, Outside Scholarships and State Programs  available to them to cover the full  Cost of Attendance.

If you still have questions after you have read through this website and guidebook, please consult the Frequently Asked Questions section, as very often you will find the answer to your question there. If not, please feel free to contact our office.
