NIU's College of Law Is Thousands Strong!

Scholarship support for students remains the law school’s top fundraising priority. We encourage you to support one of the following areas that we consider important sources of funds.  Your gift will provide much needed financial assistance to the next generation of lawyers!

 

College of Law Student Scholarship Fund - This fund provides scholarships to incoming and current students to meet student financial needs and help recruit a diverse and strong student body.

 

Daniel S. Reynolds Scholarship Fund - Few people have impacted the College of Law like Professor Emeritus Dan Reynolds. At Dan’s request, and in his memory, the College of Law has established this fund to help recruit applicants with excellent academic credentials.

 

Embracing Diversity Scholarship - One of our bedrock values is to create an inclusive and diverse community.  The Embracing Diversity scholarship provides financial support for rising second- and third-year students who create, manage, and oversee a series of talks and community conversations addressing issues of socio-economic diversity.

 

College of Law Student Emergency Fund - The Emergency Fund was established to provide assistance to current law students who have been impacted by COVID-19 or whose circumstances have been exacerbated as a result of the pandemic

 

Join the NIU Law family and support our students today. Go Huskies!
