Thank you for your request to be considered for scholarship funding at Georgetown Law. Dean Cornblatt asked me to contact you to give you some information about our scholarship process for this year. We know that financing a law school education can often be challenging. Therefore, our scholarship selection process is our effort to consider holistically - just as we did when we reviewed your application for admission - all requests for scholarship assistance. Please know that your request will be given every consideration.
To give you an idea of this year's timeline, the Scholarship Committee plans to initially consider files between now and around the end of February. We hope to make our initial scholarship awards via email beginning the first week of March. For those admitted students who are offered merit scholarship awards, the response deadline will be mid-April.
There is nothing additional that you need to submit at this time. However, along with your original application for admission, the Scholarship Committee is happy to consider any updates to your application including whether you are submitting a financial aid application, and, if you feel comfortable sharing, your current options and the amounts of any other relevant merit scholarships you have been offered.
You should note that scholarships awarded through this process are just one part of what should be an overall approach to financing your Georgetown education. We strongly encourage you to apply for need-based assistance through the Financial Aid Office (http://www.law.georgetown.edu/finaid/
) and to research other options for funding.
If you have any questions at all about scholarships or anything else, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Congratulations again on your admission, and I hope to see you at one of our admitted students events soon.
