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. 

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 social justice-related discussions as well as multi-media events centered around social justice.
  • Become a member of various clubs and organizations focused on social justice as well as participate in annual social justice community service projects.

Each year, the University provides a number of initiatives and opportunities for students to engage in dialogue and encourage involvement in social justice through our undergraduate Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion clubs and the School of Law's Center for Social Justice.

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.
