The Lax Scholarship Fund was established in 1994 by the late entrepreneur and inventor Jonathan R. Lax for the purpose of encouraging gay men to obtain additional education; aspiring to positions in which they contribute to society; being out about their sexual orientation; and acting as role models for other gay men with similar potential.
Tuition scholarships are awarded in amounts up to $20,000 to men from the five-county Philadelphia region (Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties) and Camden County, who are attending accredited colleges, graduate or professional schools anywhere, or to men attending such schools within the Philadelphia region.
Applicants should be either from the five-county Philadelphia metropolitan region, attending a qualified school in or out of the region, or from outside the region, attending college, graduate or professional school within the region.
