Honors Scholars Program Application Guidelines

Candidates selected as Honors Scholars receive annual law school scholarships of full tuition. These awards have a total value of approximately $120,000 over three years.


Chicago-Kent awards honors scholarships based on academic performance, leadership qualities, and co-curricular activities. Applicants should have a cumulative undergraduate GPA of at least 3.50 and an LSAT score of at least 163.

Applicants who do not meet these requirements will be considered for other law school scholarship awards. Find more information on other Chicago-Kent scholarship opportunities.

Application Procedure

Complete the online Honors Scholars Program application. You must also complete the fall 2014 Chicago-Kent application for admission through the Law School Admission Council. There is no application fee.

Finalist Interviews

Candidates selected as finalists for the Honors Scholars Program will be invited for an interview day on Friday, April 4, 2014. Finalists will interview with the dean and law school faculty, and meet with current Honors Scholars. The interview day will be held in conjunction with the 2014 Admitted Students Weekend on April 4th and 5th.

Chicago-Kent will provide transportation to Chicago for finalists from outside the Chicago area and will also provide hotel accommodations in downtown Chicago on Friday evening.

We will notify scholarship candidates of our decision within approximately two weeks of the Honors Scholars interview day.
