Dean's Merit Scholarship

All applicants for admission to the full-time Juris Doctor program at Pepperdine Caruso Law with an undergraduate GPA of 3.3 or higher and an LSAT score in the 89th percentile are considered for the Dean's Merit Scholarship. No formal application is required. A typical scholarship amount ranges from one-quarter to full tuition.  Dean's Merit Scholarships are awarded annually. The scholarship is renewable contingent upon the student maintaining a 2.8 grade point average at the close of each academic year.* In the event a student drops from full-time to part-time enrollment during any given semester, the scholarship will be prorated based on the percentage of the scholarship awarded.

*If the scholarship is not renewed, it cannot be reinstated in future years.
