Mike Hinton Memorial Scholarship

By Rob Kepple
TDCAF & TDCAA Executive Director in Austin

Mike Hinton, a legendary Houston prosecutor and defense attorney, was memorialized after his passing with a scholarship to the TDCAA Annual Criminal & Civil Law Conference. It has been a success, as it allows prosecutors who otherwise do not have the money to attend the Annual.

            The Foundation board has decided to expand the scholarship opportunity to all TDCAA conferences. So if you don’t have the resources to attend a TDCAA course, you can apply for the scholarship. The only qualifications are that you’re a paid TDCAA member and you fill out the application in full. The application is below.
