Commit to Georgia

Thank you for supporting the COMMIT TO GEORGIA
campaign, as we work to remove barriers and open doors,
enhance the learning environment, and solve grand challenges.

Scholarships for first-generation college graduates - presently this cohort comprises 10-15% of each entering class. Within the Fall 2018 JD-1L class, 62% of that cohort is presently receiving financial aid.  

Distinguished Law Fellow - a signature initiative modeled on the Foundation Fellows program, it has grown from an initial cohort of three recipients to a cohort of roughly 9-10 (with 4-5 additional ones in various stages of development).

Veterans - this cohort comprises an increasing percentage of each entering JD class. Presently, everyone in this cohort receives some amount of financial aid. Additionally, the Law School is a "Yellow Ribbon" school which matches private dollars with federal dollars for veterans who have exhausted the GI Bill/Post-9/11 benefits.
