Earn $1,000 Each Semester
Dr. Joseph Witherspoon Pro-Life Law Student Scholarship
Dr. Edward Hannigan Pro-Life Health Professional Student Scholarship
Pro-Life values are often decried and challenged in the medical and law fields. A support network fosters the maintenance of these strong convictions among graduate students. Scholarships are available for law students, and professional health science students (such as medical, nursing, occupational, dental, and more) who are willing to establish a Pro-Life organization and host speakers and seminars at their Texas graduate school. Texas Right to Life assists and mentors students who receive the scholarship.
Application is open year-round.
