Law School funding of student events or travel is centralized in the JD Grants Committee, which was created by the Dean in 2014 to ensure a fair, consistent, and transparent process for distributing law school funds. Students and student organizations must direct their funding requests to the committee, not to individual administrators or deans.

Please review the instructions, forms, and deadlines on this webpage before applying for funding.

Planning for Fall 2022

Revised funding request forms for 2022-2023 will be posted on the JD Grants webpage by June 30, 2022.  Virtual events will continue to be an option, and the forms for requesting funding for these events will remain on the webpage.

These are the first two deadlines for 2022-2023. These deadlines apply to funding requests for co-curricular activities, student organizations, and individual students.
