Law Office of Jae Lee Immigrant Student Scholarship

At the Law Office of Jae Lee, we regularly represent clients in matters related to immigration. As a first-generation immigrant himself, Attorney Jae Lee understands the struggles that many families face and the difficulties they may encounter as they work to establish lives in the United States. Fortunately, there are many opportunities available for immigrants, and by pursuing education and job opportunities, they can not only support themselves and their families, but they can integrate into American society, participate in the community, and live happy, successful lives.

To ensure that immigrants can pursue educational opportunities, our firm has created a scholarship program that provides assistance to first or second generation immigrants from low-income families. We award one student with a scholarship of $1,000 each semester, which may be used to help pay for tuition or other educational expenses, such as books, supplies, or room and board.
Students may apply for the scholarship if they meet the following requirements:
The student must be either a first or second generation immigrant living in the United States.
The student’s family must be considered to be low-income, with an annual household income of less than $50,000.
The student must be currently enrolled in or accepted for admission to a college, university, or graduate program.
The student must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher in their most recently completed academic semester.
