There are lots of scholarship schemes around the world. LLM Scholarship is one of them. On this page, we are going to provide a way to the desired students who are eligible and looking to apply for Law Scholarship online.
The LLM scholarships cover the full cost of tuition only (or 50 percent of the tuition fee if you are awarded the partial LLM International Economic Law or LLM in Criminal Justice scholarship) in the form of a fee waiver; the scholarships do not cover additional course costs (books etc.) or accommodation fees. Scholarships are not payable directly to successful applicants but are offset against your student fee invoice. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit, the submitted personal statement in response to the set question as detailed in the application, and in some cases, financial need and professional/extracurricular achievements.
