UC Irvine School of Law Announces Scholarships for Class of 2013
UC Irvine, School of Law announced on Monday that next year’s incoming class will, for all three years, receive a scholarship worth fifty percent of their tuition. Funded by private donations, these scholarships will be given to students arriving in August 2010.
The offering of generous scholarships for the second class follows upon last year’s privately funded scholarships that granted the school’s Inaugural Class full-tuition for all three years. The Dean of the Law School, Erwin Chemerinsky, believes that these scholarships in combination with competitive admissions requirements will put the school in the top twenty as well as maintain a high caliber of student body. UC Irvine School of Law accepted only 4 percent of applicants for its Inaugural Class, which was the lowest acceptance rate in the country.
Tuition to the Law School for the second class is expected to be about $40,000 for in-state students and $50,000 for those out of state. While students are guaranteed on-campus housing, they will be responsible for their own housing and living expenses. Students who have difficulty paying the remainder of the tuition are able to receive other types of financial aid in the form of federal loans.UC Irvine School of Law Announces Scholarships for Class of 2013 by Aine Ford
