Scholarships and Scholarship Retention Data

The College of Law offers a scholarship program to attract talented candidates and to help them minimize the cost of their legal education. Candidates for the major scholarship programs are encouraged to have their admissions applications complete by January 15 to receive priority consideration. The College of Law considers all diversity factors in the administration of its scholarship programs. Scholarships are retained for six semesters of law school, as long as the student remains in good academic standing and remains enrolled in the College of Law.

Tennessee Law Scholars. The Tennessee Law Scholars program is the premier scholarship program offered by the College of Law. Scholars receive a full-tuition waiver for in-state or out-of-state tuition, among other financial benefits. Accordingly, candidates who have been admitted to this program typically have academic credentials in the 80th percentile of UT’s admitted candidate pool and have demonstrated experience, aptitude, and interest in research. Scholars work closely with faculty during their six semesters of law school.

John W. Green Scholars. The Green Scholars program targets high-ability Tennessee residents. Green Scholars receive between half-tuition and full-tuition scholarships. Candidates accepted under this plan will typically have academic credentials in the 65th to 90th percentiles of UT’s admitted candidate pool.

Tennessee Tuition Differential Scholarships. Out-of-state candidates accepted to this program will pay in-state tuition (out-of-state tuition will be waived) to reduce the cost of attendance. Accepted candidates will typically have academic credentials in the 65th to 90th percentiles of UT’s admitted candidate pool.
