Students with questions about their individual scholarship eligibility should contact their program office directly.

LL.M. Scholars

Each year Boston University School of Law acknowledges a small number of LL.M. applicants who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement through the LL.M. Scholars Program.  Acknowledgement includes a generous scholarship award and designation as an LL.M. Scholar.  All applicants for admission are automatically considered for this merit scholarship; no separate application is required.

Frederic G. Corneel Scholarship

In 2002, a scholarship fund was established in honor of Frederic G. Corneel, a distinguished lawyer from the firm of Sullivan & Worcester, who had been an instructor in the Graduate Tax Program for over 20 years.  Mr. Corneel was widely respected as a superb scholar, teacher, practitioner, and as a leader in the field of legal ethics.  The income from this fund provides partial scholarship awards, based on merit and financial need, to one or more full-time students enrolled in the Graduate Tax Program.

To apply for this scholarship, a prospective student planning on entering in the fall semester must complete and submit the following forms to the Graduate Tax Program no later than May 15.

Part-Time Students

Part-time LL.M. students may be considered for scholarship aid from BU Law; however, many other financial aid resources, such as federal loans, are only available to students who are enrolled at least half-time (6 credits or more). Students who will be enrolled less than half-time (one or two courses) have several private loan options. Please contact the Law Financial Aid Office if you need help finding these lenders.
