External Scholarships

External Scholarships are scholarships that are offered and administered by agencies outside of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. External scholarships provide an excellent resource for students needing help funding their legal education.  As a Pitt student, you have access to a scholarship database for both internal and external scholarships called PittFund$Me.  When logging into your student portal, you can search PittFund$Me and enter your profile information to search for scholarships for which you may qualify.

Another recommended scholarship database for law scholarships can be found at www.accesslex.org/databank.
