Berkeley Law, the law school of the University of California, Berkeley, offers a limited number of scholarships each year to outstanding students who have been admitted to its Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree.
The law school’s Advanced Degree Programs Office offers more than a dozen selective merit- or citizenship-based scholarships. Students from Arab countries are eligible to apply for many of them.
While some scholarships offer a full tuition waiver, others cover only a percentage of tuition or a designated amount. In most cases, recipients will be responsible for paying a $1,000 seat deposit, plus travel and living expenses.
– Some scholarships are merit-based and open to all applicants. Others, including the African Legal Impact Scholarship and the Least Developed Countries Scholarship, are open to students from specific regions or countries. See details of all scholarships on the website of Berkeley Law’s Advanced Degree Programs Office.
– Scholarship eligibility and academic merit are determined by the Berkeley Law LL.M. admissions committee based on evaluation of academic records and supporting materials included in the application for admission.
To be considered for a Berkeley Law scholarship, students must first apply for admission to the law school.
Scholarship decisions are made at the time of admission. Only the African Legal Impact, Scholarship Reconsideration, and Matching Consideration Scholarships require a separate application after admission. For all other scholarships there is no separate application needed, and all eligible admitted applicants will be considered.
