Wayne Watts Scholarship for Aspiring Lawyers

The Wayne Watts Scholarship for Aspiring Lawyers is made possible by generous contributions from former AT&T General Counsel and prominent UTA alumnus D. Wayne Watts. This scholarship is designed to provide a full tuition scholarship to students nearing the end of their undergraduate career at UTA who are looking to attend law school and become practicing attorneys. Sophomore, Junior and Senior undergraduate students are welcome to apply. Students who will have only one semester remaining before receiving their undergraduate degree will have the scholarship applied to their final semester only. Students must be able to demonstrate satisfactory academic performance in order to apply for this scholarship. A minimum of 3.0 GPA and a practice LSAT score is required to apply for this opportunity. For questions about how to get a practice LSAT score, contact the Pre-Law Center at prelaw@uta.edu. This opportunity is available to current UTA undergraduate students only.
