The Urbina Law Firm Scholarship
When the founder of The Urbina Law Firm Michael Urbina and his wife Giselle Urbina were pursuing their college career, they applied to different scholarships to be able to afford their studies. They were able to acquire a couple of them and were so inspired by the people who donated these scholarships. Giselle received a scholarship from the group United Boricuas of Georgia and this scholarship was given to her thanks to the donations of their members. The scholarship helped her acquire college textbooks that were too expensive for her to afford. United Boricuas of Georgia is a group of great people who like to serve the community and help others. This inspired her so much that along with her husband promised themselves that when they had a job they were going to pay it forward.
This is how The Urbina Law Firm Scholarship was born. It was born from the idea that we should always try to help others achieve their dreams because at one point in our lives someone helped us to achieve ours.

The ULF Scholarship has given me hope when I mostly needed it. It has helped me further my education and strive to better myself as DACA student. The ULF Scholarship assisted me with my financial hardships, such as paying for classes and books. I am blessed and thankful for being the recipient of the ULF Scholarship. The ULF is doing great things for young teens who are trying reach for the highest stars that are sometimes inalcanzables! Thank you so much for this beautiful gift and I hope the Lord blesses the Urbina family for their amazing heart.

The Urbina Law Firm Scholarship was an opportunity that gave me the hope that I needed to continue to fight for my education as a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals student. With it being my very first scholarship that I received, it not only gave me hope but it also gave my family hope. I was proud to have shown my parents that their daughter reciprocates the hard work they exhibit each day. This success marked the beginning of many more opportunities. Because of the Urbina Law Firm’s contribution to my education, I no longer have monetary barriers keeping me from continuing my education.
