Jai Lao supports higher education for the descendants of Lao refugees living in the United States. On November 2, 2011, Jai Lao launched our first National Scholarship Program offering an aggregate of $10,000 in total grants to eight qualifying students with a projected goal of increasing funds every year. Jai Lao’s National Scholarship Program is aimed at helping students afford college as well as to encourage community involvement while staying connected to their Lao culture and heritage. In a land of opportunities, we strive to give Lao Americans with a desire to give back to society an opportunity to succeed.
