School of Law Scholarships

Creating access to a transformative legal education.

It all starts with scholarships

When you support scholarships, you help our law students manage costs and make ends meet. But more than that, you give them a transformative sense of belonging, purpose and personal growth.

You help us shape a new generation of service-minded lawyers and judges ready to face the future and improve our world. 

Tuition alone doesn’t fully cover what it costs to educate our students. In fact, it only covers about two-thirds of it. Most of our students receive financial aid or scholarships. Last year alone, Creighton awarded nearly 1,900 scholarships to students across all schools and colleges. 

Since 1929, when the first full-tuition scholarship was awarded, we’ve relied on our alumni and the community to invest in our students. We’re proud of this tradition, which — thanks to you — is still going strong. 

Through scholarships, you help the School of Law remain a competitive draw for students across the country seeking an outstanding Jesuit legal education.

America’s Jesuit law school 

As our alumni know, Creighton's School of Law provides our students with intellectual challenge, academic rigor and an opportunity to form a foundation of values for lifelong service in the law.  

With a new dean, Joshua Fershée, JD, at the helm, we will fulfill our promise as America’s Jesuit law school

We will continue to educate the attorneys of tomorrow in a tradition of service, ethics and compassion. We will expand opportunities for clinics and externships, giving our students hands-on legal experience and continuing to increase the level of service Creighton offers our community. 

And we will build a foundation based on trust, faith and hope — trust in each other. Faith in our institution and values. And hope that working together, for and with others, we can build a better and more just future for all.

Impact students, impact society

"Scholarships have provided me a gateway to realize my dreams. There's a huge need for Spanish-speaking attorneys across all areas of law. So, this gift of scholarships is going to compound and have an impact on society. When people support me, they're supporting everyone I’ll be fighting for in the future.”

— César Magaña Linares, School of Law
