Center for Social Justice Scholarship ($3,000)

All incoming students who are admitted into the Criminal Justice, Law and Society, or Political Science majors will receive a $3,000 per year Center for Social Justice Scholarship. This scholarship will be renewable for each year of full-time undergraduate student, providing that you meet satisfactory academic progress (SAP) and remain in one of the listed majors and attend at least one speaker or session on social justice per semester.

This amount is in addition to WNE academic merit scholarships, which can be up to $24,000 per year for incoming first-year students and up to $20,000 per year for incoming transfer students. 

In addition to the scholarship, students will be given the opportunity to:

  • Attend guest lecture series given at the Center for Social Justice at the School of Law.
  • Sit in on one class per semester at the School of Law.
  • Attend a special social justice related discussion to be facilitated by either current law students or School of Law faculty.
  • Participate in an annual social justice community service project.

The Western New England University School of Law Center for Social Justice works to advance justice through research, education, advocacy, innovation, and public engagement. 

Want to have an even greater impact? At WNE, you can earn both your bachelor’s and law degree in 6 years instead of 7 through our 3+3 Law program offered with our own School of Law right on campus. Learn more about this time- and money-saving opportunity.
