First-Start Scholars Fund - 

The purpose of the Fund is to provide support for first-generation students accepted into the School of Law. Upon admission, each student's personal statement will be carefully screened to seek those who have a commitment to service, community building, and problem solving. 

Once selected, each First-Start Scholar will receive a partial tuition scholarship at the beginning of his/her law school education, which will continue for all three years of his/her legal education. He/she will be granted a stipend to be used over the three years of law school to support career development, professional attire, travel, and bar preparation expenses.
