Asian & Comparative Law and Global Business Law LL.M. Financial Aid

Scholarship assistance for the LL.M. program is limited. Accordingly, applicants should budget sufficient funds to cover at least nine months of study in the program.

International applicants for the LL.M. program are automatically considered for tuition waivers. A small number of these financial assistance awards are made each year. Students in exceptional financial need may submit a statement indicating details of their financial situation with their application.

Applicants from lower and middle income developing countries with an interest in health, education, and economic development issues should consider submitting an application to the Barer Institute Fellowship.

International Students

International students are advised to write to various foundations and organizations within their own country to inquire whether any scholarship or grant aid is available for studying outside of their country.

An excellent resource which may assist in your search for international study scholarship opportunities is Study Abroad, which is published every two years by UNESCO. Study Abroad describes all the United Nations and various intergovernmental agency scholarships available. There are over 500 pages of detailed descriptions of scholarships offered by each country of the world, either for its own citizens to study somewhere else, or for people from somewhere else to come and study there. This is followed by information on specific courses of study offered by the universities and institutes of each country, specifically designed for, or available to people from other countries. Study Abroad is available by mail from Unipub, P.O. Box 433, New York NY 10016; (212) 686-4707.

We also recommend a book, "Funding for United States Study" from the Institute of International Education. It is available for sale through Amazon.com. You may also find helpful information on the web site www.iefa.org.
