All applicants are considered for partial, merit-based scholarships.
No separate application is needed. Scholarship criteria include academic performance, experience in practice (where applicable), and published and unpublished written work. Emphasis will be placed on the applicant having achieved an outstanding academic record in law school, on the applicant's employment history, and the unique experiences the student will contribute to the law school community. If admitted, applicants will be notified of their scholarship award, if any, at the time of admission.
Applicants from international partners with whom St. John’s has a formal partnership agreement will be eligible for scholarships according to the agreement between the two institutions.
An LL.M. degree is significant financial investment. Prospective students should consider both the costs and the possible benefits. While St. John’s considers all applicants for partial, merit-based scholarships, applicants should expect to take responsibility for financing their degree.
The International Student & Scholar Services Office (ISSSO) sets these amounts in compliance with applicable federal immigration rules and regulations. International students must enroll on a full-time basis. Admitted students should pay close attention to communications from ISSSO and contact ISSSO with questions.
