When a Texas prosecutor stands up and announces “ready” for the State, the community needs to know that that prosecutor is truly prepared to see justice done. With government funding for training ever-decreasing, the Foundation can step in to support excellence in Texas prosecution. The Foundation’s leadership believes that Texans share our vision of a safer state, and having well-trained and equipped professional champions in the courtroom can make a real difference.

The Texas District & County Attorneys Foundation provides support for such endeavors.​

Mike Hinton Memorial Scholarship


By Rob Kepple
Executive Director

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 at THIS LINK.
