Padua Latino Justice Scholarship $2500

$2500 Annual Padua Latino Justice Scholarship Contest

The Houston accident attorneys at Law Offices of attorney Alejandro Padua understand the value of education and that obtaining higher education is the pathway to success for many young adults. We also understand the ever-increasing costs of obtaining an education in the US.

Between housing, tuition, books, and school supplies, the cost of attending college or graduate school often times is very expensive and unattainable to many. As immigrants from Mexico, law partners Alejandro Padua and Sara Padua, understand that immigrants to the United States face hurdles unlike many native-born citizens, and sometimes these hurdles can seem too difficult to overcome.

We want to invest in the next generation and believe in those that have immigrated to the US from Latin America and throughout the World to pursue their dreams and transition into the leaders of tomorrow. We are particularly encouraging applications from undocumented immigrants, DACA recipients and DREAMers, and students with pending immigrant or nonimmigrant visa applications.

Attorneys Alejandro Padua and Sara Padua are pleased to offer a $2500 scholarship to the winner of the first annual Padua Latino Justice Scholarship contest to a current law student or undergraduate student interested in pursuing a career in law. We too have been given assistance to achieve our education and career dreams, and we want to pay it forward and help a student achieve their own dreams.
