Education Award Ceremony (EAC)
The Education Award Ceremony (EAC), is one of LAS’s most important events of the year. We give recognition and awards to grade school kids based on achievements like academic achievements and extracurricular activity. LAS also gives out scholarships to promising Laotian college students and rising seniors, in hopes that they can pursue higher education, break the cycle of poverty that many of our people still live in, and hopefully return to give back to their own community. Students are encouraged to work on their grades, essay skills and volunteering, regardless if it is with LAS or not.
LAS established a scholarship program for young Laotian Americans pursuing in higher education. We believe that giving to those who need financing and are passionate about their pathway deserves to be rewarded. We receive many applications each year and actively hosted ceremonies for these recipients.
