Alumni Association Scholarships

The Alumni Association is proud to foster education and recognize the academic achievements, community service, and outstanding potential of students by offering a number of scholarships every year. Beginning in the 1980s with the establishment of the Garland R. Walker Memorial Scholarship Endowment, the Association has worked to increase the availability of scholarship funds for South Texas College of Law Houston students. Last academic year, nine students received scholarships from three named scholarships: the Lizabeth Parham Matthews Scholarship, the Alumni Association Honor Scholarship, and the Garland R. Walker Scholarship.

Donors can designate their gift to any of the three above named scholarships.
