The Graduate School at the University of Arkansas and the School of Law provide for a limited number of Graduate Assistantships for exceptional LL.M. candidates. These assistantships provide for a full tuition waiver plus a stipend of $3,000 per semester in exchange for the candidate’s work in a variety of legal and teaching capacities. Competition for the Graduate Assistantship positions is high, and the awards are primarily merit-based, although special consideration may also be given to particularly well qualified international candidates.
Graduate Assistantships awards are made after a candidate has been admitted to the LL.M. Program.
There are two dedicated scholarship programs associated with the LL.M. Program:
The Leland Leatherman Scholarship is awarded to an LL.M. candidate with interests in agricultural cooperative law. This scholarship was funded by the Arkansas Electric Cooperatives Corporation to honor Mr. Leatherman’s groundbreaking work with agricultural cooperatives.
The Donald B. Pedersen Scholarship, designated to honor former Professor of Law and Director of the LL.M. Program, is awarded to an LL.M. candidate based on academic excellence.
