Intellectual Property Scholarships

IP-scholarships-page

Georgia State Law annually awards five scholarships to students who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to intellectual property law. These are a part of a range of scholarships and waivers offered by the college to reduce barriers to pursuing legal education.

Intellectual property scholarships for entering first-year students:

  • One full scholarship for a first-year student
    This scholarship covers in-state, full-time tuition and mandatory student fees for the first six fall and spring semesters of attendance at Georgia State Law. The recipient becomes an IP Fellow in his or her third year and may support an IP faculty member with scholarly research. In addition, the fellow will receive a $4,000 annual stipend.
  • Two partial scholarships for first-year students
    These two scholarships cover partial-tuition waivers of $2,000 for one year and are nonrenewable.

Intellectual property scholarships for upper-level students:

  • Two partial scholarships for upperclass students
    These two scholarships cover partial-tuition waivers of $1,000 for one year and are nonrenewable.

Applications

Acceptance to Georgia State Law is required to be eligible for any scholarship. All intellectual property scholarship applicants must submit:

  • A resume
  • A 500-word statement addressing your interest and achievement in, and commitment to, intellectual property law
  • A signed and dated Waiver of Confidentiality Form
