Rice, Murtha & Psoras $1,500 Scholarship

Here at Rice, Murtha & Psoras, we understand that the leaders of tomorrow are working and often sacrificing to receive an education today.

That’s why, in 2016, we launched our annual Rice, Murtha & Psoras Scholarship. The purpose is to award a $1,500 scholarship each year to a deserving student to apply towards college or law school costs and help that student realize his or her potential.

The 2024 Infographic Scholarship
