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.

The deadline to apply for the Fall 2024 scholarship is May 20,2024. Please direct any questions about the scholarship, the application requirements, or the information that must be submitted to
