Conditional Scholarship Retention Data
Per ABA Standard 509, law schools are asked to post data on their web sites regarding conditional scholarship retention. Standard 509 defines a “conditional scholarship” as “any financial aid award, the retention of which is dependent upon the student maintaining a minimum grade point average or class standing, other than that ordinarily required to remain in academic good standing.” Some Elon Law scholarships fit this definition, and admitted students are informed of the grade point average criteria for their scholarship in their scholarship awards letter. The data regarding our students’ retention of conditional scholarships is noted in the chart below. As indicated in that chart, for the fall 2011 entering class, 65 students entered with conditional scholarships, and only six students had their scholarships reduced or eliminated for their second year based on their academic performance. Of those six, most awards were reduced. If you have questions about the law school’s scholarship awards, please feel free to contact the Admissions Office.
