At Urbina Law Firm, we are passionate about giving back to the Hispanic community. That is why, each year we award a $2,000 scholarship to a student who is a current DACA recipient and that is enrolled in a school within the United States. We are asking students to share with us how they actively demonstrate involvement as a volunteer in a school, church, or a non-profit organization that serves the Hispanic community, exhibits leadership qualities, and has good moral character. It is our hope that through this scholarship we can help a Hispanic student achieve their academic goals and pursue their dreams.
