Need financial assistance for law school? Apply for the Cohen Scholarship Fund!


The Jay G. Cohen Memorial Student Opportunities Endowed Scholarship Fund is a memorial scholarship that honors the memory of Jay G. Cohen, a prominent Baltimore attorney and proud Terp husband and father. This fund was established to reduce the barriers to law school admission for UMD undergraduate students who have both financial need and demonstrated success at the University of Maryland, and who have a strong interest in pursuing a career as an attorney. 

This fund will provide students with resources to pay for part (or all) of an LSAT preparation course, and/or for additional expenses incidental to the law school admissions process (e.g. application fees, transportation for visits, etc.). All full-time UMD undergraduate students are eligible to apply, although preference is given to students in their junior year. 

For complete award criteria, instructions, and an online application, please visit the scholarship homepage

The deadline to apply is Friday, April 1, 2022 by 1 pm.

Questions regarding this scholarship or the application process should be directed to bsos-scholarships@umd.edu and Greg J. Shaffer, Esq., Associate Director, Pre-Law Advising, gshaffer@umd.edu.
