Hi all!

I'm planning on applying for a LLM in the US and just wondering when is the best time to apply for scholarships? Before I apply for the LLM (theres always a risk I won't even get an offer from any of the uni's I apply for) or after I get an offer (assuming I get an offer - but then I would have to accept/reject the offer not knowing if I have a scholarship or not)?

I know it depends on the scholarship and I'm researching now but does anyone know generally whether you have to have an offer lined up to apply for a postgraduate scholarship?
