Margaret Cooper Scholarship

The Margaret Cooper Scholarship was founded in the fall of 2008 to honor the many years of service of 353rd Judicial District Judge Margaret Cooper. Judge Cooper retired from the Travis County district bench on December 31, 2008, after several decades of service. The scholarship, under the auspices of the Travis County Women Lawyers Scholarship Fund, Inc., is in the amount of $1,500.00.

Throughout her career, Judge Cooper has been known for her intelligence, her integrity, and her preparedness. She was the only Travis County district judge who was board-certified in the area of administrative law. The scholarship in her name will be awarded annually to the University of Texas Law School applicant who best demonstrates perseverance in the face of adversity, financial need, and community service.

The scholarship is posted in the U.T. Law School Financial Aid office in the fall of each year, and awarded at the TCWLA Judicial Reception the following February.
