Every gift to the School of Law or other University designation during the Annual Giving Campaign, July 1-June 30, counts toward participation. Consider participating by contributing to any of these law school designations:
Securing gifts to the School of Law Scholarship designation for scholarships, grants and fellowships is a top priority for the School of Law. Financial aid helps to develop and enhance the law school's national profile by attracting top students. Click here to support the School of Law Scholarship designation.
The Law School Reunion Scholarship designation was established for the purpose of providing financial assistance to an incoming first year law student who shows great promise to be an outstanding law student and member of the law community. This year's Reunion Scholarship honors the Class of 2008's Five Year Reunion. Click here to support the Class Reunion Scholarship.
The School of Law Annual Fund bridges the gap between tuition income and the actual cost of educating students each year. Contributions help preserve and improve the excellence of the School of Law, making them vital to a high-quality legal education. By definition, Annual Fund gifts are applied to annual operating budgets and are not used for more permanent, enduring resources such as endowed chairs/professorships and buildings, nor are they used to support the centers associated with the School of Law.

In the fall of 2011, the Black Law Student Association (BLSA) Scholarship was established to recognize an incoming first-year law student who shows great promise to be an outstanding law student and member of the law community. The scholarship seeks to support a student who demonstrates the skills and passion to be a leader in the BLSA student organization. School of Law BSLA alumni Kevin Mitchell ’09, Artika Tyner ’06, and Tisidra Jones ’12 were instrumental in the creation of the scholarship. Click here to support the BLSA Scholarship.
Consistent with its mission of encouraging faith-based social justice initiatives, the School of Law is committed to a meaningful loan repayment assistance program for alumni who work in public service jobs. Supporting the Loan Forgiveness Program - Law School designation will help ensure that School of Law graduates will be able to take, and stay in, positions that address unmet legal and community needs. The Loan Repayment Assistance Program helps to extend the reach of the School of Law mission in caring for the poor and underserved with high-quality legal representation.

The UST - MN Justice Foundation Public Interest Fellowship Grant (MJF) giving category provides alumni another avenue to support the School of Law's mission of improving the conditions of the disadvantaged and underserved, reflecting the school's commitment to social justice. Alumni participating in the UST-MJF Public Interest Legal Fellowship support, dollar for dollar, a UST Law student who works for an MJF-participating legal aid office or public interest organization.
By participating in the 3L Class Gift - Law School giving category, UST School of Law 3Ls carry forward a yearly tradition of participating in a class gift campaign, while showing their solidarity as a class. Each year the class gift includes two parts: (1) a tangible item selected by the class and (2) a public interest law fellowship that will be awarded to a student working for a public interest organization during the summer one year after the 3L class graduates.
