Scholarship Overview

The purpose of the scholarship program is to provide financial assistance to second & third year ethnic minority law students completing their legal education at South Texas College of Law, Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University, and The University of Houston Law Center.  In turn, our scholarship recipients have excelled in the study of law and become true leaders in their professions.

The next scholarships will be awarded for the 2019 fall semester.

Join us, in 2019 for our next Barristers’ Ball as we continue to provide financial assistance to second & third year ethnic minority law students in the Houston Area.
