Princeton University and Indiana University Maurer School of Law establish Princeton Law Scholars Program

Princeton University and the Indiana University Maurer School of Law have created a scholarship and mentoring program for Princeton students interested in pursuing legal education.

Each year the Princeton Law Scholars program will offer at least two graduates admitted to the Maurer School of Law scholarships amounting to approximately 50 percent of annual tuition, along with access to a formal mentoring program. The scholarship will reduce the cost of law school tuition over three years by $45,000 to $75,000, depending on the student’s residency and other factors.

Each year, Princeton will nominate at least two students or alumni for admission to the Maurer School of Law, provided the applicants meet the law school’s admission criteria. Other indications of future success, such as prior academic performance, letters of recommendation, past professional and other experience, and desire to study at the law school, also will be considered. Applications will be accepted beginning with the law school’s 2015 entering class.
