Attorney Raymond Lahoud Scholar Program

Baurkot & Baurkot: The Immigration Law Group, is a premier Immigration Law and Deportation Defense Firm located in Easton, Pennsylvania, and serving individuals, corporations, small businesses, non-profits, universities, hospitals, religious organization, multinational corporations, foreign students, undocumented individuals, and others, with respect to all matters related to United States Immigration Law and Deportation Defense.

Baurkot & Baurkot firmly believe that the next generation of Americans is owed the same opportunities that many Baurkot & Baurkot Attorneys have been privileged to have had: the ability to attend the best of colleges and universities, followed by law school.

These opportunities would have been absent, without the good will and financial assistance of friends, family members, state and federal financial assistance, merits based scholarships, and other private scholarship programs. Baurkot & Baurkot: The Immigration Law Group believes that the gifts of our past must be paid forward—to future generations who, like so many, need financial assistance for the doors of opportunity to open.

Baurkot & Baurkot: The Immigration Law Group announces the "Attorney Raymond Lahoud Scholar Program"--a renewable and annual scholarship--open to those who wish to pursue a career in the legal profession. The "Attorney Raymond Lahoud Scholar Program" will award a $10,000 scholarship to each of five selected candidates.
