Leon Jaworski Scholarship for Outstanding Undergraduate Advocates

Baylor Law School is pleased to offer the prestigious Leon Jaworski Scholarship for Outstanding Undergraduate Advocates to incoming law students who have outstanding records in advocacy programs such as debate or mock trial. This scholarship is a full-tuition scholarship and is renewable for the second and third years of law school if the recipient continuously maintains a cumulative grade point average of 2.00. A 1926 graduate of Baylor Law School, Leon Jaworski perhaps will be most remembered for his roles as Special Prosecutor during the Watergate crisis and as founding partner of the international law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski LLP. The path chosen by Leon Jaworski took him to a place in American jurisprudence where his legal accomplishments will not be forgotten and will be remembered by Baylor Law School.

The recipient will be chosen in April, but the deadlines are different for different entering quarters. For Spring applicants, the deadline is November 1. For Summer applicants, the deadline is February 1. For Fall applicants, the deadline is March 1. This scholarship requires a separate application, available at http://www.baylor.edu/law/jaworski.

Presidential Scholarships

These full-tuition scholarships are limited to graduates of Texas A&M University and Abilene Christian University, and they are renewable for students who maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA.

Texas A&M University graduates should contact Karen Severn, Pre-law Advisor, at ksevern@tamu.edu.

Abilene Christian University graduates should contact Dr. Neal Cotes, Acting Pre-law Advisor, at coatesn@acu.edu.

2L and 3L Academic Scholarships

Second- and third-year students who were not awarded scholarships as entering students have an opportunity to receive scholarship assistance for their second and third years of law school. Unlike most law schools, Baylor Law School awards academic merit scholarships to second- and third-year students who did not enter law school on a scholarship but who achieve outstanding academic success in law school. If a student has a cumulative GPA of a 3.60 or above after the first three quarters of law school, the student is eligible to be considered for this scholarship beginning with his or her 4th quarter of law school. The scholarship will be awarded after each quarter a student continues to earn a 3.60 GPA.

Students will not receive scholarship assistance beyond their 9th quarters of law school.
