The scholarship is based on academic excellence and financial need. Selected scholars must be dedicated to contributing positive international relationships in business, compliance, or other legal practices.

The Delaware Law School Scholarship for International Leaders is available to international students who have completed a first degree in law from a non-US law school that fulfills the academic requirements for the practice of law in that country.

In addition, candidates must:

  • apply to a Delaware Law School Masters of Law program
  • have a cumulative GPA equivalent to 3.3 which meets LLM or graduate program requirements
  • have a minimum score of 83 for TOEFL, or a minimum score of 6.5 for IELTS

  • have excellent oral and written communication skills as demonstrated through a committee interview (may be completed remotely) and submission of a writing sample

All students will be evaluated on the basis of merit and need for scholarships. We offer tuition scholarships on a limited basis to qualified candidates, but these do NOT cover the costs of housing, transportation, books, travel or other expenses.

Students should check with the scholarships and other resources available in their home countries for available funding for study in the United States. The best place to start is by contacting the office of EducationUSA in their home country. EducationUSA is a part of the U.S. State Department, and assists students in finding, applying for, and finding funding for their studies in the United States. For more information, visit EducationUSA's web site at http://educationusa.state.gov/.

Visit the Cost of Attendance page for tuition rates and other fees. Students must have money to cover living expenses such as rent, food, books, health insurance, and other costs, and fund their travel to Delaware. We recommend that students budget $50,000 if they wish to complete the program in one academic year.
