Outside Sources of Aid

Financial Aid is unique for each student; we encourage you to investigate as many opportunities for funding as possible.  Search the Internet often, as new awards appear all the time, and old ones may be discontinued.

Outside scholarships/loans are considered "other financial aid" which is counted against your cost of education for the academic year.  If you are applying for a GW Law need-based grant, any other financial aid you receive is subtracted from cost to lower your unmet need.  If, after receiving an aid package from the Law School, you later receive aid from an outside source, your GW aid package must be recalculated.

Typically, outside scholarships target populations based on region, race, religion, or employer.  Check with your local Chamber of Commerce for industries, civic organizations, lawyers’ wives associations, Bar associations, and the like for possible opportunities in your area.

If you receive an outside scholarship, please have the foundation send the check to:
