Each year, Oklahoma City University School of Law awards more than one million dollars in scholarship assistance to prospective students. All applicants for merit scholarships are automatically considered by the Admissions Committee and no separate application is required.

While most of these awards are based primarily on academic excellence at the undergraduate level and a strong performance on the LSAT, additional factors such as leadership, service, diversity, work experience, financial need, and a clear commitment to the values and ethics of the legal profession are also considered.
