Additional Information: The J.L. Weigand, Jr. Notre Dame Legal Education Trust has been established to provide assistance to students from the state of Kansas. The scholarships will be awarded to selected students who have been legal residents of Kansas for 10 years prior to admission. The scholarships will be awarded without regard to means, race, religion, or gender to selected full-time students attending the University of Notre Dame Law School, the University of Kansas School of Law, or Washburn University School of Law.

Award Amount: The scholarship will cover full tuition, fees, and books, and provide a generous room and board allowance. Since the scholarships pay for 100 percent of books, tuition and fees, no other scholarship is allowed for those purposes. Additional scholarships for room and board are allowed only if they do not exceed the maximum financial aid allowed, established by the school. Scholarships may be continued at the trustees' sole discretion for each year of school with respect to those students who maintain standing in the top 10 percent of academic class, or otherwise meet satisfactory academic standards in the judgment of the trustees.
