TRACE Scholars Program

The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law is one of only two schools in the United States at which TRACE International offers a fully funded scholarship to an LL.M. candidate interested in the field of anti-corruption law and who is committed to transparency in business and government. The TRACE Scholar Program covers tuition, living expenses, and travel for one international LL.M. student from a low-income or middle-income country at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law.

The TRACE Scholar will spend an academic year at Maryland Carey Law taking courses focused on business ethics, rule of law, governance, and economic development and will write an LLM thesis on a subject related to anti-corruption. Upon graduation, the TRACE Scholar will participate in a paid summer internship at TRACE headquarters in Annapolis, Maryland. Thereafter, the TRACE Scholar will return to his or her country to work toward embedding transparent business practices and reducing corruption in his or her community.

If you are interested in applying:

  • Submit your application to our LL.M. Program by April 1.
  • Submit a one-page statement of interest in the TRACE Scholar Program, describing your interest in pursuing studies related to strategies and tools for increasing transparency and reducing corruption. Please note that this statement may serve as your statement of scholarly intent.

If you have any questions about the application process, please contact us at 410.706.3492 or llm@law.umaryland.edu.
