Merit and Need-Based Medical and Law School Scholarships

Medical Students 

The Drexel College of Medicine offers a number of scholarships to medical students each year based upon a variety of factors including field of study, personal characteristics, past academic accomplishments, loan debt, and parents' financial information.

In order to be considered for Drexel's medical school scholarships, you must complete the following:

  • Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and include your parents' personal and financial information. If you already completed your FAFSA but did not include parental information, you should update your 2020–2021 FAFSA application with information about your parents.
  • Complete an online scholarship application.

The deadline for both incoming and continuing students to apply for these scholarships is April 1, 2020.

Law Students

The Thomas R. Kline School of Law has several scholarship opportunities available.

Law Need Based Scholarships

A limited number of Need Based Scholarships may be available each year for second and third year law students. Applications are submitted by letter to the law school's Senior Associate Dean of Students. The deadline in June is announced each year by email to all continuing students. Applicants must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the following academic year.

Drexel Alumni Scholarships

Drexel offers special incentives for our undergraduate alumni. Complete your JD degree at Drexel and we will support your choice with the Drexel Alumni Scholarship. The program provides you with a $1,000 grant each year of full-time study.

School of Law Merit Scholarships

We are committed to enrolling the highest caliber of students to our law school. To recruit competitive law students, we have dedicated significant financial resources to the law school's merit based scholarship program.

Among the school's merit-based scholarships are scholarships for individuals who have served in the Peace Corps or Teach for America.

Students are considered for a merit scholarship when they submit an application for admission; there is not a separate application. A recipient will be notified of the award at the time of his or her offer of admission.

93% percent of our Entering Class of 2019 3-year and 2-year degree students received an academic merit scholarship varying in amount from $10,000 to $44,660.
