Tax Scholarships


The Northwestern Pritzker School of Law Tax Program offers a number of merit based scholarships to full-time students. Scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis and no additional application is necessary to be considered.

Dean’s Scholarship

The Dean’s Scholarship is the highest award that is given to students in the Tax Program. Recipients receive a full-tuition scholarship and a position on the editorial board of the Tax Lawyer publication. These scholarships will be awarded to applicants who have outstanding academic records at their JD institutions, a strong commitment to the study and practice of tax law and previous journal experience. 

Tax Program Faculty Scholarship

The Tax Program Faculty Scholarship Award will provide highly qualified students with a scholarship equal to two-thirds of the cost of tuition. These merit-based scholarships will be awarded to applicants with outstanding academic records at their JD institutions, who have tax or tax-related experience in the real world, and who demonstrate exceptional promise for work in the Tax Program

Tax Program Alumni Scholarship

Funding for the Tax Program Alumni Scholarship is provided by alumni donations. Each year, one or more incoming students will be awarded a scholarship, which is equal to one-half of the cost of tuition.

Merit Scholarship

The Northwestern Law Tax Program administers merit-based scholarships to incoming students. These awards are of varying amounts and are based on academic performance, especially in tax law courses, and a demonstrated interest in the area of tax.

The Tax Program application can be found online. More information about applying for Financial Aid can be found on the Admissions section of our website.
