What scholarships are available for law/business school?

Scholarships/Fellowships for a law/business student interested in entrepreneurship and the environment.

In September, I will begin getting a joint degree at Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School (JD/MBA). I am very excited about this. The only problem is the cost - tuition alone is about $45,000/year, and the program is 4 or 5 years long. My mother is disabled and my family will not be able to contribute at all.

I am looking for fellowships or scholarships which could help me pay for this. I have already applied for financial aid through Harvard, which is only paying for part of it.

I am very interested in entrepreneurship, particularly environmental or social entrepreneurship. I tried to start a clean energy company after graduating from college, but it did not work. I am going to grad school to help make my next company a success.

I plan to apply for scholarships throughout the year, so don't worry if the deadline has already passed.

Your best bet is working through the financial aid process. I'd look into the RoI for attending your programs.

Community of Science is a useful database to search for funding opportunities (especially the keyword search). I don't know what's freely available as my uni pays for access, but I was able to set up a couple of regular searches and I get regular emails with new funding opportunities. In a cursory search, it looks like law and business opportunities can be found there.
