Scholarships for Canadians
« on: January 12, 2009, 02:09:31 PM »
Hello everyone again,

The one question which I neglected to ask earlier, was do American Law Schools offer any types of scholarships to Canadians who attend their law school?

Thanks,
RM

From my experience, merit-based scholarships are still available as usual. Need-based aid varies depending on the school.

Thanks for your quick reply. I have once question which perhaps you can answer. I have been trying to get a straight answer, and have been unlucky thus far. Do you know if at anytime students like us (Canadians) would be eligible at all for in-state tuition. With the schools I was looking at they offer after six-months you can qualify for in-state tuition for Out-of-State residents, but they are clear on if that applies to foreign students or not. Any insights?

Thanks,
RM

I go to a private school, and don't have any real experience with in-state tuition. However, I would tend to doubt that a Canadian would ever be eligible for in-state tuition.
