Need Based Grants

Attending law school is a significant investment. To ensure that a Penn Law education is as affordable and accessible as possible, we provide generous financial assistance in the form of grants to students who demonstrate need. 

How to Apply

To be considered for need-based financial assistance (grants) at Penn Law, we use the financial information that you provide for yourself, your parent(s) and, if applicable, your spouse. Applicants for financial aid are required to submit the following:

  1. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Penn’s Federal School Code is 003378.

    Note: We strongly recommend providing your social security number (SSN) on the CSS Profile Application.  Applications submitted without the SSN can experience significant processing delays.
