The fiscal stability of Willamette University and strategic partnerships enable the College of Law to offer strong financial aid options to its students. Merit-based financial aid is awarded by the College of Law in the form of scholarships.  The Coverdell Fellowship, a partnership between Willamette University College of Law and the Peace Corps, provides graduate school scholarships to returned Peace Corps volunteers who complete a degree-related internship in an underserved American community while they pursue their studies.
