MAX by AccessLex Scholarship Incentives

We've awarded nearly $700,000 in MAX scholarships since the program launched in fall 2017, and in 2020-2021, we'll be awarding another $330,000!

We recognize and understand that for many law students, personal finance may not be a top priority right now. No matter if you’re a 1L just finding your footing in the classroom, a 2L looking for the perfect internship and deciding on a career path, or a 3L preparing for the bar exam and interviewing to start your career, there is always something competing for your attention. But, in short – your money matters! That’s why MAX has built-in incentives to help you maintain motivation and momentum as you progress through the personal finance curriculum developed just for law students like you.
