What Is the Proud Texan Scholarship?

At The Law Offices of Hilda Sibrian, we have experienced first-hand the benefits of a higher education. We believe that getting a college education is a key to learning how our world functions and to understanding how we can improve the world around us. A college education is also important in order to be competitive in the work field and to achieve one's career goals.

We also greatly value the support and inspiration we have received from our parents, mentors and teachers along the way. We have always admired those who are driven to help others and to better those around them.

That is why we are excited to "pay it forward" by awarding one $2,500 scholarship to the student who submits the winning video and essay in our 2018 Proud Texan Scholarship Contest.

We will award the scholarship in the form of a check from The Law Offices of Hilda Sibrian. It will be payable to the institution which the student provides in his or her application form (or a different institution provided in accordance with our Terms and Conditions).
