The 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.  Throughout her career, Judge Cooper was known for her intelligence, her integrity, and her preparedness. During her time on the bench, she was the only Travis County district judge who was board-certified in the area of administrative law. The scholarship, under the auspices of the Travis County Women Lawyers Scholarship Fund, Inc., is in the amount of $2,000.00.

The recipient of the scholarship will be announced at TCWLA’s Combined Mentoring Program and Membership Lunch in the spring of 2021.

February 5, 2021

The scholarship in her name is awarded annually to the University of Texas Law School applicant who best demonstrates perseverance in the face of adversity, financial need, and community service.
