Applications Open for Van Aacken Fund Student Awards

Primary tabs

Applications are now open for the Van Aacken Fund Student Awards, which are designed to help prospective law school students offset the cost of applying. The awards will provide two students with $500 each to cover such costs as law school application fees, LSAT/LSAC fees, LSAT prep costs, costs associated with campus visits, and more. Applications are open until Friday, Oct. 8 at 11:59 p.m., and decisions will be made by the end of October. Priority will be given to third- and fourth-year students.

The awards are handed out through Georgia Tech’s Law, Science, and Technology (LST) program within the School of Public Policy. The Van Aacken GT Law Fund, established in memory of attorney and Georgia Tech alumnus Troy Van Aacken, is sponsoring them.

To be considered, applicants should submit a document no longer than one page containing their full name, major(s), minor(s) (if applicable), and current GPA, as well as 200-word responses to three questions. Those interested should apply using the application form on the LST website.
