Why Scholarships and Loan Assistance are Important

Scholarships and Loan Assistance at Fordham Law School are made possible by alumni and friends who give back to the law school they love by endowing scholarships for the next generation. These benefactors know the power of a Fordham Law education and believe in the promise of our students. They understand that a Fordham-trained lawyer is the future not only of our school, but also of the law itself. Their magnanimity is inspiring and matched only by our students' sense of pride and purpose. These students will become superb lawyers who exemplify the finest values of the legal profession. Please consider establishing a scholarship that will help ease the financial strain of ever-rising expenses for a legal education. The student recipients who benefit will contribute powerfully to both the legal profession and our society.

If you or someone you know is interested in funding a current or endowed scholarship at Fordham Law, please contact Karen Deasy at 212-636-7438 or via email at
