The Senator John J. Hainkel, Jr. Scholarship is awarded to an incoming student, preferably from Louisiana, who demonstrates high academic achievement. Senator Hainkel graduated from Tulane Law School in 1961 and was honored with the Outstanding Alumni Award in 1981 and the McGlinchey Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001. He is the only person in Louisiana history to have served both as Speaker of the Louisiana State House of Representatives and as President of the Louisiana Senate. This scholarship was established by Senator Hainkel's three children, two of whom are graduates of Tulane Law School.
