Emmett Family Environmental Law Scholarship

November 15, 2022

The Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at UCLA School of Law has established the Emmett Family Environmental Law Scholarship.

This is a three-year, full tuition scholarship awarded to one exceptional incoming student who shows a dedicated commitment to pursue a career in environmental law and outstanding promise to contribute to the field. The recipient of this inaugural scholarship will be joining a community that draws on the resources of the country's premier public university to develop law and policy solutions for climate change and other environmental challenges. These resources include the Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, which is among the leading environmental law programs in the country, with faculty members renowned for their public service, teaching excellence, and scholarship in state, federal, and international law. Through groundbreaking research and public service initiatives, the Emmett Institute helps shape climate change and environmental law and policy in California, the United States, and jurisdictions around the world.

UCLA Law offers its students one of the country's most extensive environmental course offerings, covering a range of issues including natural resource protection, environmental justice, energy law, climate change law, pollution control, water law, toxics regulation, and international environmental law. Ranked as one of the top environmental law programs in the country, the Emmett Institute also provides students with scholarship funding, experiential learning, and connections to a network of alumni in leadership positions across the country. Through one-on-one mentoring, our faculty help students find internships and early-career positions in government, nonprofits, and private practice. The Emmett Institute gives students opportunities to work at the forefront of climate and environmental advocacy in California and around the world.

Recipients of the award who are California residents will be awarded full resident tuition and fees for three academic years, beginning in fall 2023, provided they remain students in good standing. Recipients who are not California residents will be awarded full non-resident tuition and fees for their first year of law school, and full California resident tuition and fees for their second and third years of law school. * Most UCLA Law students are able to qualify for resident tuition status in their second and third years. The UCLA Health Insurance Fee, which can be waived with evidence of similar coverage, is not included and remains the responsibility of the student. No showing of financial need is required for this award.
