Least Developed Countries Scholarship
University of California (UC), Berkeley - Berkeley Law
The LDC Scholarship was developed to encourage enrollment of students from Least Developed Countries, defined by the United Nations, as the poorest and most vulnerable countries in our international community. 47 countries are currently categorized as LDCs. For a complete list, see the UN website.
- Scholarship awards are based on academic merit and citizenship or primary residence in an LDC country.
- All eligible admitted applicants will be considered, and no application is necessary. Award decisions will be emailed to the email address listed in the recipient’s application form.
- This is a half-tuition waiver. Recipients will be responsible for paying the $1,000 seat deposit, the balance of tuition fees, plus travel and living expenses.
- Recipients must maintain a minimum grade standard of ‘P’ (pass) or higher in all classes during the first semester in order to maintain scholarship eligibility during the second semester, and hybrid option students during the second semester to maintain scholarship eligibility during the third semester.
