NIU College of Law Bar Prep Scholarships

“Success is where preparation and opportunity meet!” 

Help us provide scholarships for at least two students to prepare successfully for the upcoming bar exam.  With this support, these students can devote their time to much-needed study.

Preparation for the bar exam is an extremely difficult hurdle that all attorneys have to overcome in order to be licensed. This process is often made more trying by the fact that, due to financial circumstances, graduates have to work to support themselves which limits their preparation time to study for the bar exam. This year, there are undoubtedly additional challenges due to the impacts of COVID-19 on employment opportunities and the switch to a remote bar examination.  We know that many graduates can pass the bar exam if they only had some financial support.  This exam is the last hurdle to becoming a licensed practicing attorney.  Bar Prep Scholarships would provide much-needed financial assistance and can go a long way to making a students’ dream of becoming an attorney come true. With this financial support, graduates can focus and pass the bar exam.
