Student Scholarships & Writing Competitions

AccessLex Law School Scholarship Databank

We wanted to make it easier for students to find money that’s already available to help pay for law school and lower their student loan burdens. So we did it! We created a space where students can search nearly 800 carefully curated and vetted scholarship opportunities and writing competitions, with filters to help them find the ones best suited for them. The Databank includes scholarships for incoming and returning law students, and even some that can be used to pay for degrees prior to a J.D., including bachelor’s and master’s degrees; or towards bar study costs. It’s the most comprehensive list of scholarships out there that’s designed specifically for law students and those interested in a law career. Check it out today!
