Georgetown Law is aware of the growing cost of legal education and is dedicated to providing as many financing options for LL.M. students as possible. Therefore, we have partnered with a number of top institutions worldwide to provide scholarship opportunities which may defray some or all of the cost of obtaining an LL.M. for candidates from specific countries.

D. Tsai Endowed Scholarship Fund (Taiwan)

Georgetown University Law Center is delighted to announce the establishment of the D. Tsai Endowed Scholarship Fund, which will provide scholarships to students from Taiwan. This scholarship is made possible through the generosity of pioneering business leader philanthropist and Georgetown Law graduate Daniel Tsai, LL.M. '79.

Up to two students per year will be selected to receive a full-tuition scholarship. All admitted students who meet the criteria for this scholarship will be automatically considered.

COLFUTURO Scholarship (Colombia)

Students interested in this joint program will apply to one of Georgetown’s LL.M. programs through normal application procedures, meeting all the standard admission requirements established by Georgetown.

Students admitted to a graduate degree program offered by Georgetown will then submit a Loan-Scholarship application to COLFUTURO, following the normal application procedures and meeting all the standard requirements established by COLFUTURO. Interested candidates should make sure to review the application procedure found on COLFUTURO’s website.

Up to three selected students for this program will receive a scholarship of 33% towards tuition from Georgetown Law and $25,000 from COLFUTURO.

Established for Swiss students, the Kronstein scholarship has been set up in commemoration of Heinrich Kronstein who taught at Georgetown between 1942 and 1967; it is organized as a Swiss foundation and is funded today by alumni who have been granted the scholarship and have attended Georgetown University (the first recipient received a scholarship in 1958).

Shandor Scholarship (Ukraine)

The Shandor Scholarship was established in 2003 to honor the late Ivan Shandor, a 1973 graduate of the University's Law Center. This partial-tuition scholarship is awarded preference to law students enrolled in the LL.M. degree program at Georgetown who meet the following criteria: candidates are residents of, or have resided in Ukraine; are fluent in the Ukrainian language, and demonstrate a desire to promote democracy and uphold the rule of law in Ukraine. All admitted applicants who meet the requirements indicated here will be automatically considered by the Admissions Committee for the Shandor scholarship.
