The Stanton LLP Scholarship

The Stanton LLP Scholarship is awarded to a graduating or rising senior in high school to apply towards the student’s educational pursuits. Established in 2017 by James M. Stanton, founding partner and a first generation college student, the scholarship was created as a way to give back to the Dallas community and to invest in the next generation of leaders. Here at Stanton LLP, we recognize the importance of higher education and how scholarships can leave a lasting impact on students.
