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 awards one or more Laptop(s) valued at $1,000 or more 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 School 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.
