FEDEM Grant

FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND SPOUSES: The FEDEM Grant is intended to provide partial tuition support to eligible individuals.

The federal alliance established by the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law and the US Office of Personnel Management provides a FEDEM Grant to those federal employees, and/or their legal spouses, who are admitted to and enroll in the Master of Science in Law (MSL) program, including the online master’s programs.

The FEDEM Grant provides a 10% tuition discount to qualifying federal employees and their legal spouses. Please note that if you are receiving tuition support from another program or entity, the combined tuition support cannot exceed total tuition, and the FEDEM grant may be reduced accordingly.
