Florida State University College of Law offers a program of scholarship assistance made available through the generous support of alumni and friends.

First-Year J.D. Scholarships

College of Law first-year scholarships are awarded to students on the basis of merit, considering both the LSAT/GRE score AND cumulative GPA. The majority of our entering students receive first-year scholarships.

Admitted students are automatically considered and are notified upon admissions if they are awarded a scholarship. All first-year scholarships are for three years. Scholarship awards, or a lack of scholarship award, is non-negotiable.

Second- and Third-Year J.D. Scholarships

Second- and third-year students may apply for a variety of scholarships each spring. Most scholarships disburse during the fall and spring semesters, with limited exceptions for summer disbursements.

The College of Law also offers scholarships specific to our environmental programs.

For more information about 2L and 3L scholarship opportunities available through the College of Law, contact the Office of Student Advancement at or 850.644.7338.

Florida State University does not award scholarships that are conditional on law school academic performance; therefore we do not post an ABA 'conditional scholarship retention worksheet.'
