External funding

Wayne Law students often qualify for merit awards from external organizations. Demographic and niche-based awards are also widely available. 

We encourage you to pursue these outside sources of assistance. In addition to the list of potential resources listed below, we urge you to check with the local bar association in your hometown and with any organization or employer that you or your family are affiliated. 

Any external aid you receive will reduce the amount of loans you may borrow, thereby reducing your loan indebtedness.
