2022 #CATSGiveBack to the STAR Fund


We are thrilled to announce that we have met the $20,000 Challenge Match, and an additional $20,000 match has been secured! Our increased goal is to reach $40,000 by the of the day – your gift will double in impact.

Students still need your STAR Fund support. Your participation is crucial to their continued academic success. Please make a gift today and help us meet our new goal of $40,000  thank you!


Become a STAR supporter for Northwestern Pritzker School of Law by making a gift to support emergency grants for students. 

An anonymous donor has stepped forward with a $1 for $1 match of up to $20,000 for Giving Tuesday! Make a gift today and double your impact!

The Student Assistance and Relief (STAR) Fund provides immediate financial assistance grants to students. Many students have scholarship packages that do not cover housing, family, and health emergencies; these unexpected hardships can disrupt students' lives and prevent them from completing their education. The STAR Fund bridges the gap for students without a personal financial safety net and ensures all our students have the opportunity to succeed.

As part of this year’s #CATSGiveBack Giving Tuesday campaign, we’re promoting a day-long effort to raise $20,000, which will unlock a challenge match of up to $20,000! These contributions will create, on average, more than 10 additional STAR Fund grants.

Since the launch of the STAR Fund in 2017, we have raised nearly $950,000 that has been awarded to 512 students. This year, more students will face emergencies and turn to the Law School community for help. Your gift will provide the support they need to continue their education. Our ability to help students maintain focus on their education and our high standard of educational excellence is only possible because of alumni donors like you.

“I am very grateful to you, the STAR Fund donors, and Northwestern for always being there for students. 

This grant is a tremendous help and will allow me to continue my education.” 

– STAR Fund Emergency Grant Recipient

This Giving Tuesday, please join us in meeting the needs of our Northwestern Pritzker Law students by making a gift that will be matched $1 for $1! Thank you!
