We are happy to announce our 2023 Sid Roman Law American Dream Hispanic Student Scholarship is now open for submissions!


The goal of the Sid Roman Law American Dream Scholarship is to provide the technology tools necessary for Hispanic, Latino, and ESOL students to succeed in college. Our firm will award one or more Laptop(s) valued at up to $1,000 to one or more deserving Orange County Public Schools Senior(s) who meet the eligibility requirements. We have typically awarded three (3) laptops per year.


We established this scholarship in 2019 after identifying a significant need among the local Hispanic student community. Prior to 2019, we had awarded Eagle Scout and a Law Student scholarships.  We are certain that there can be no better investment than in the future of deserving young people who have the drive and work ethic to pursue their dream of attending college, but may not have the financial means to realize it.
