Houston Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

KGS Law PLLC is a personal injury law firm out of Houston. We take pride in our city and the young minds that fill it. We love Houston and think it is one of the greatest cities in America. One thing we love about this city is the diversity. Did you know that there are over 145 spoken languages across the city? Making it a city that young adults want to call home and start families of their own.

As personal injury lawyers, we’ve dedicated our lives to helping those who have suffered. We care deeply about people in our community and want to help them achieve their goals in whatever way we can. This prompted us to start our scholarship and give back to students looking to continue their education.

With so many different cultures and languages in our community, for this scholarship, we are asking students to talk about traditions that are important to their families and ways society can be more inclusive of everyone. We understand that preserving traditions is essential but can also be difficult depending on where someone lives. What can we as a society or our government do to make our community more inclusive?

This is a 1,000 scholarship opportunity. One student will be selected to receive this award. The deadline is April 1, 2023. Continue reading below for more information on eligibility and the application process.
