Graduate Tax Scholarships
Georgetown University Law Center (GULC)
February 05, 2021
Full or partial tuition
Each year the Law Center chooses a small number of exceptional full-time Taxation LL.M. students as Graduate Tax Scholars. Students are selected based on their demonstrated interest in tax policy and their potential to excel in tax scholarship. Scholars receive full or partial tuition awards and participate in an enrichment program with leading tax practitioners and government officials.
Graduate Tax Scholars will complete a substantial research paper on a tax-related topic, either in a seminar course or as a Graduate Independent Research. Scholarships are available to full-time U.S. and foreign-trained Tax LL.M. students. Scholars may generally not accept paid employment outside of the Law Center during the academic year, although they are free to apply for academic externship.
To apply, indicate your interest in being considered for the scholarship on your LL.M. application form, and submit a supplemental essay of 500 words (max) on an issue of tax law or policy that is of interest to you. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. However, initial scholarship offers won’t be made until at least early March. The deadline for consideration is February 5, 2021.
