Scholarship Recipients

Attention all 2L’s and 3L’s who are receiving scholarship funds.  We are currently posting fall awards on your account.  You will notice these on ULINK.  They may appear to be from different accounts than you were awarded previously. These awards will disburse on August 13, 2012 as scheduled by the Financial Aid Office.  Your spring award will show as “Potential Law Scholarship” at this time.  We will begin posting spring awards during the fall semester and they will be set to disburse to your account at the beginning of the spring semester when financial aid disburses the spring funds.  Your scholarship amount is not changing.  If you have any questions, you may feel free to contact me directly.
