Jonathan Lax Scholarship Fund for Gay Men

Lax Scholarship applications due Nov. 1, 2017

The Jonathan Lax Scholarship Fund for Gay Men was established in 1994 by the late entrepreneur and inventor Jonathan R. Lax for the purpose of encouraging gay men to obtain additional education; to aspire to positions in which they contribute to society; to be out about their sexual orientation; and to act as role models for other gay men with similar potential.

Tuition scholarships are awarded in amounts of $5,000 and $10,000 to gay 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
