We at Varghese Summersett PLLC are dedicated to our Fort Worth community through our active participation as ambassadors for Habitat for Humanity and as Founding Members of WORTH.
Each year our firm also gives back to the community in ways that are especially close to our hearts through the Varghese Summersett PLLC Annual Scholarships. We offer several annual scholarships, including criminal justice scholarships to law school students and special needs scholarships to youth under age 15.
We are particularly passionate about supporting education, with a focus on law students who are interested in pursuing a career in criminal justice and youth with special needs.
Two of our firm’s top criminal defense attorneys, Christy Jack and Letty Martinez, have children with special needs and they are passionate advocates for youth with disabilities. The special needs scholarships can be used to offset the cost of camp, tutoring, classes, secondary education, post-secondary education or tools to help the students learn and flourish.
To share our passion for the criminal justice system, we offer our $1,000 Annual Criminal Justice Changemaker Scholarship each year to relieve the financial burden of a deserving student pursuing their education goals. We encourage students to share with us a piece of legislation or law you believe is outdated, and why updating this piece will be beneficial to society. Students interested in applying for this opportunity should also have an interest in pursuing a career in the criminal justice field.
We are currently accepting applications for our 2021 Criminal Justice Changemaker Scholarship now through midnight on October 1, 2021. Visit this page to learn more about this opportunity and how you can submit your application.
