The Foundation for Natural Resources and Energy Law


For most scholarships, a law student who is enrolled full-time at one of the Foundation’s Constituent Law Schools and who can demonstrate a commitment to the study of natural resources or energy law is eligible to apply. LLM students and incoming 1Ls who have applied to one of these schools but have not yet been accepted may also apply. Unlike our other scholarships, Equity and Inclusion Scholarships are available to full-time Black and Indigenous JD students at accredited law schools whether or not they are attending a Constituent Law School. 

Applications are evaluated and awards are made by The Foundation’s Scholarships Committee according to the following criteria:

  • Potential to make a significant contribution to the field of natural resources law
  • Academic ability
  • Leadership ability
  • Year in law school
  • Financial need


The completed application form and supporting documents must be submitted by February 28, 2022, for JD Applicants and March 15, 2022, for LLM/SJD Applicants. Students enrolled in a combined JD/Masters programs must  observe the JD Application deadline. INCOMPLETE APPLICATIONS AND APPLICATIONS RECEIVED AFTER THE DEADLINE WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.

Fall, spring, and full-year scholarships may cover partial or full tuition. Recent awards have ranged from $1,000 to $18,000. Tuition scholarships must be used at, and will be paid directly to, the student's law school.
