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 $5,000 and $10,000 to men who live in 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. For more questions, please contact Learn about the members of the Lax Scholarship committee here.
