Toll Public Interest Scholars Program

The Toll Public Interest Scholars Program combines financial support with a challenging academic program for select students seeking academic training and practical experience in public interest law. We have two scholarship programs:

  • The Robert and Jane Toll Public Interest Scholars Program, created by Robert Toll L’66 and his wife Jane
  • The Public Interest Scholars Program, supported by the generous contributions of M. Shuster and the Class of ’54, with significant support from Valla Amsterdam

Both of these scholarships include full tuition for the first year of study and two-thirds tuition for the second and third years. Details about this program are available on the Scholars page of our website.
