Gonzaga Law School's Thomas More Scholarship Program provides a unique opportunity for students to realize their commitment to serving the public interest through law.
Each year, a small number of entering first-year students are awarded full tuition Scholarships so that they may pursue careers in public service unencumbered by substantial law school debt. The Scholarships are awarded for one year, but are readily renewable. Interested students and advisors should visit our website for application materials and to learn more about Gonzaga's Thomas More Scholarship Program. http://www.law.gonzaga.edu/Academic-Program/thos_more/default.asp Scholarship applications are due March 1. School of Law applications should be submitted no later than February 1.
