University of California African Legal Impact LL.M Scholarship 2023/2024 for African Students


The African Legal Impact Scholarship was developed to encourage enrolment of students from Africa seeking advanced legal education in University of California, Berkeley. Because funds are extremely limited, the African Legal Impact Scholarship can only be provided to two outstanding applicants each year.


This is a full-tuition waiver. Recipients will be responsible for paying only the $1,000 seat deposit, plus travel and living expenses.


African Legal Impact LL.M Scholarship awards are based on:

  • Citizenship or primary residence in Africa

  • Academic merit

  • A Statement of Intention describing what the scholarship recipient plans on accomplishing in Africa after graduating from the LL.M. professional track

  • Students must be admitted to the LL.M. professional track program before they can apply for this scholarship. Scholarship application instructions will be provided to eligible admitted students.

  • Recipients must maintain a minimum grade standard of ‘P’ (pass) or higher in all classes during the first semester in order to maintain scholarship eligibility during the second semester.

Application Deadline:1st November 2022 for option A (spring start) and 18th December 2022 for option B (summer start)
