Charlotte School of Law offers merit-based scholarships to some incoming students in recognition of their strong academic performance. These scholarships are awarded to full-time (13+ credit hours) and part-time (9-12 credit hours) and range from $1,000 to the full tuition cost per academic year. Merit-based scholarships are non-negotiable, may be renewed each year and are considered confidential information. Awarded students who enroll in the part time (9-12 credit hours) program are eligible for 80% of the full-time award.
Students have the right to appeal their scholarship loss by writing a letter of appeal to the Scholarship Committee and forwarding it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Academic Achievement Scholarships
Academic Achievement Scholarships are performance-based scholarships awarded to full-time and part-time students who demonstrate academic excellence by completing the academic year in the top 15 percent of their cohort. The award is offered for one academic year only and each cohort is evaluated at the end of spring semester. Award amounts are tiered based on the top 5, 10 and 15 percent of the class with the top 5 percent receiving the maximum award. Award amounts vary based on available scholarship funding.
These scholarships may be awarded in conjunction with merit scholarship; however, the total scholarship award will not exceed a student’s tuition costs for one academic year. Students enrolled in 9-12 credit hours are eligible to receive 80 percent of the full time award amounts. Part-time students will be evaluated for the first time when they have completed 30 credit hours and have reached the end of their academic year. An academic year may begin in January or August. Beyond that, awards will be determined at the end of each spring semester. The cohort for determining first time recipients of the scholarship will include only those students who have completed 30 credit hours.
